Where the pine trees have a certain and distinct smell so do the gum trees I especially love the lemon scented gums. Whats cool about these too is they leave some really interesting nuts behind after flowering and releasing their seeds that you can use in decorations. I had some fun making these cute tree decorations with some old tinsel i had.
I also love the bush stories about the gum nut babies and other Australian flora and fauna written by May Gibbs years ago.
the Blossom petals punch from stampin up was used to create these and this is the card I finished making after the video.
and a close up shot of the made paper flowers.
I hope you've enjoyed my Australian Christmas ideas or if you're looking for something different give these a try! now sit back and enjoy the videos.
Blessings to you
