Good luck!

Here are my projects that I created with some of MME’s line from AWDML Store (http://www.awdml.com):

A Boy and His Bear 

and to celebrate Christmas in July...how about a fun and funky Christmas tree?!


You'll need adhesive, three different patterned papers, your paper trimmer, scissors, an edge distresser and embellishments.

First cut out three circles.  Mine are 10", 7.5" and 4".


Next cut a straight line from the side to the middle of each circle and distress the edges of the circles.

place a strip of adhesive along the back side next to the slit you cut, then curl the circle in on itself.  Do this will all three circles.
Now stack them on top of each other.  You can use adhesive here if you want, but it's unnecessary.

Then, simply embellish as desired.  I used some MME stickers and cut outs and Kaiser Crafts Pearls.

 Enjoy your finished product!
