Crafty Ribbons Advent Event Day 4 Christmas Tree Canvas

Good morning everyone, hope you are well! Here I am with another project for the Advent Event at Crafty Ribbons, this time a christmas canvas making use of the gorgeous Christmas ribbons! I started by using a canvas sheet and drawing on a triangle shape. I then cut the ribbon to angled strips to make my tree shape. I then added a little bit of present printed ribbon as my base. Lastly I added a gem star at the top of the tree. A different christmas decoration and present :-)
