Ribbon tree

Christmas is all about lights, food, trees and presents but don't forget

that's our challenge at 52CCT this week. 

If you are like me you  have a box of ribbon which explodes when you take the top off and never seems to get any less no matter how much you use. Perhaps yours is neatly stored on rolls and never gets in a tangle. 
Glitter is now controversial, what isn't?, but I've used edible glitter so I hope that is better for the environment. Biodegradable glitter is now available. A world without glitter would be sad. 

I made a little ribbon tree using a twig and some scraps. It's not my idea, I did see one on Pinterest but couldn't get to the bottom of who had posted it. Sorry not to be able to credit the maker. 
I made the background with a few Christmas stamps. 
It was a little fiddly but once glued down is fairly secure. I used glue and tape to fix the ends of ribbon and the stick. I don't think I'll send this one through the post as it may not survive. 
We look forward to seeing how you use ribbons and glitter to add to your Christmas card stash. 
Thanks for visiting, enjoy your day. x
