Hershey's Christmas Tree Simplified

In 2012 I came up with my very first Hershey's design: The Hershey's Christmas Tree. Little did I know that I would be making 50 various projects using Hershey's Kisses and Nuggets WITH MORE TO COME. There is still something magical about this very first tree that started it all AND everyone who saw the potential in more shapes long before I did. I'm grateful for you.


This is a simplified version of my Updated Hershey's Christmas Tree. You will find this version uses less card stock and is faster to make than before (thanks to some tips from an anonymous blog follower). Above you will find a FREE VIDEO tutorial. Below you will find a PRINTABLE tutorial. All the supplies you'll need for this project are available for purchase HERE!

I will give you the Christmas Tree Printable Version as a bonus tutorial in addition to your other tutorial choice when you order (no substitutions).

PS: Instructions for the simplified original tree trunk using two Hershey's Nuggets can be found in my printable tutorial. Nuggets provide a slightly more stable platform for the tree, whereas the Rolo bases are much faster.

This is a 6-page step-by-step photo tutorial (8 pages total including the title page, time saver steps, supplies and recommendations). The printable version also contains my simplified original tree trunk with Hershey's nuggets in addition to the Rolo tree trunk.

This was my first Hershey's tutorial, so I'm pricing it less than my other ones as a special thank you to my customers.

Minute Mondays: Washi Tape Note Cards

The Cherry on Top Washi tape is great for giving your cards a quick burst of color. It's also great for making fun punched embellishment. These two Washi Tape Note cards can be made in a matter of minutes. Just watch my video to find out how to make them.

This little flower was made with whisper white card stock, washi tape and the flower from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack. Add a Brights Candy Dot and you have cute little flower embellishment.

Bleached Calla Lily Tutorial

The Remarkable You stamp set is one of the prettiest new stamp sets in the catalog with it's large blooms and kind greetings. I was immediately drawn to the calla lily image and I knew that it would be perfect for use with the bleach technique. The bleach technique is not new, but if you've never done it before, it can be fun to watch your card stock change color right before your eyes. Just check out my video tutorial below for instructions.

When you are working with bleach, it's important to remember that the bleach will pull different colors out of the card stock, so it's best to test your card stock first. Sometimes even different lots of card stock can have differing results. You can see my sample chart using Stampin' Up Blue card stock below. Notice how some of the blues (especially the darker ones) pull more yellow than white out of the card stock.

I ended up choosing Marina Mist as my favorite blue for this project. Lost Lagoon and Pool Party also bleached out fairly white to make a nice looking calla lily. After you've bleached out your area, you will want to make sure you let it dry for 5-10 minutes before adding color.

Happy Stamping!!
