Video: Accordion Tree page 181

After Shannon West did a video on this cute lil guy, I was so excited to make one.  It was a little bit tougher than I thought to get him lined up with her method so I had to tweak the process for me.  If anyone else has an easier way, let me know!

Here’s my version and after doing it with 4 classes plus my team yesterday, most of them came out pretty good!
Remember that your first tree might not come out perfectly but be patient with it. (you should have seen my first one lol – looked like someone lopped off the top!)

You may need to customize the very top section if it doesn’t ‘peak’ enough for you.  Sometimes I cut off 3 sections, depends on how the rest of the tree builds up.

*(Stamping School Members – this will be archived for you with the cutting measurements/recipe sheet. It will be uploaded later today there once I get done typing up the measurements)

Let me know if you give it a try!

    Great job with this Linda. I don’t know if I will use it in my regular card class, though. I will give it a try this weekend then see how it goes. Thanks for all the time you put into this. You’re the BEST!

    Hi Linda, Thanks for working out all the kinks to this adorable project! I can’t wait to give it a try. Great video!

  7. Paula C says:

    So cleaver.Thanks for the video. But what does the outside of the card look like.

  8. I just put an artichoke bellyband around it – I did show it in the video. Keep the outside simple since the inside is wow

    Love the instructions for the tree. Thanks. But I don’t have the punch for the star and it isn’t in the catalog but was happy to see it as a framelit in the holiday catalog (Holiday collection). My order for that is still on the way. Can’t wait to try it.

  10. there is a punch for it! It’s the Merry Minis Punch Pack, page 6 of the Holiday catty. Linda

  11. You took all of the terror out of it!!!! Made it doable.

    Love your video and I tried it at my first Christmas cardmaking class and everyone agreed that it wasn’t as scary as it looked to make. Thanks to you and your great suggestions I was able to teach it to my ladies. I do love your Stamping School also. Great ideas to learn and I always look forward to Sunday evenings. Thanks!

  13. aw thanks, Lois! Nice to hear! Linda
