Spirelli Christmas Tree

Whilst in a charity shop I came across some Spirelli shapes for Christmas trees and candles.  There were only a few shapes in the packet, no picture and scant instructions, but for 20p I thought I would buy them and try some Spirelli.  I'm not sure if I've wound it correctly, but even so I was quite pleased with the final result which reminded me of the Spirograph I had as a child!

The tree shape was die cut so I fastened the thread to the rear and wound around the shapes before attaching the tree to the card blank with foam tape.

To make this card I used:
     5" x 5" warm white hammer card blank
     Marianne Design 'Spirelli Christmas Tree'
     Warm white thin crochet thread

I am entering the following challenges:
     Tales from the Craft Room - Something New (I've tried a new technique)
     Christmas Crafts All Year Round - Anything Christmas or Holiday Related
     Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge - Trim the Tree

How great to see this technique used again and you have created such a lovely festive card. I don't think I would have got such a pretty centre without instructions!
