Altered Tree Branch and 100 Flowers in 20 min Video Tutorial

Hello everyone! I am so excited to share this project with you this morning. This is my Caring Tree. It used to be a low hanging branch in one of our trees in the front yard. The hubby cut it down for me and I love it!

I have made 500 flowers, 280+ leaves (video posted below) from the Mother's Day Cart on my Cricut. Check out the videos and photos and let me know what you think about it.

This first photo is of the entire project. The tree was made to display the cards I make. It will have cards all over it whenever I make them... or get them out of the drawer... LOL. Right now I am just enjoying the tree as it is.

This is a closeup of the flowers and leaves. Like I said before there are 500 flowers and 280+ leaves on this tree. That took the longest to do believe it or not. Hours with a HIGH temp hot glue gun... not my idea of fun but well worth the pain... er... I mean time it took.

This photo shows a few of the 30 office clips I have throughout the tree. They will be holding cards.

MY CARING TREE - is a tree made of ...

1 - branch from the tree in my front yard
1 - Vase on clearance at wally world
1 - hot glue gun
3 - boxes of mini office clips
7 - hot glue sticks
286 - cricut cut leaves - misted, folded and curled
500 - cricut cut flowers - distress inked, doodled, misted with two colors, glued and then glittered.
500 - pieces of bling

oh ya and two really bad hot glue gun burns... but all worth it.
