Feather Tree

Here is the feather tree i made as a Christmas gift for Taylah's teacher Mrs Wallace, Joanne from ACP had made one up in the store and so i had to make one, sorry i didn't have my camera on me to get a pic of Joanne's tree.

A Creative Place - Wooden Tree
Stampin' Up - Tag Punches and PP
Kaisercraft - Wooden Christmas FLourish & Pearls
Making Memories - Metal Sign & Paint
