Bonjour! Joyeux Noel. It's Christmas in Paris at Chocolate Crafts and Bears, Oh My today. Let me treat you to my version of the Eiffel Tower decorated for the holiday season. You don't have to travel to France to enjoy it's beauty.
Aaaah, so you thought it was just a card huh? No I made these Eiffel Tower Christmas tree ornaments. Let me tell you how much fun they were to make. Gosh they are so cute. I got the template for free at Paper Toys. So grab your Eiffle Towers and give it a try!
For the card I used Spellbinders Floral Oval, Large Oval, and Layered Poinsettia dies. The snowflakes are Sizzix Tim Holtz On The Edge. They have been painted with glue and sprinkled with Martha Stewart Glitter. The Poinsettia were cut on white card stock and sponged with Studio G ink in two different colors of pink.
The Pointsettia have also had crystal stickles applied for sparkle and a recollection rhinestone for the center. The image was colored with Copic markers. The flourish is from Cheery Lynn and the crystals are from Michael's.
A total of 5 ornaments were created. The Eiffel Towers were printed out on White Card Stock and assembled. Once assembled, I painted them with glitter glue and applied crystal glitter on them in a heavy coat. If you do this don't be worried that you won't see the print. Once it dries it dries clear and it becomes really sparkly and pretty.
I decorated the towers with the Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia, Cheery Lynn Flourishes, Wired Crystal Sprays from Michael's, and white floral berrys from the "Dollar Tree" that have had crystal stickles applied to them as well as the Poinsettia.
