Tree Trophies

Oh my gosh -  did you see these adorable little Festive Trophy Cup Ornaments on Tim Holtz' blog the other day?  I flew home from work and started working on some of my own as soon as I got there!
These first 3 are pretty much clones of what Tim did -  I used different colors on the trees and trophy cups as I didn't have the ones Tim used and I used Remnant Rubs on the Vial Labels on the trophies instead of stamping on them. 
I used Butterscotch Alcohol Ink to color my mirrored stars and pretty much everything was adhered with my glue gun.
I just love the Tiny Tattered florals!  I used a Martha Stewart punch for the greenery, and Jingle Brads on the ribbons.
Then I ran out of Mirrored Stars and the right size Ranger trees - but luckily had some trees that came already colored and snowy from Joanns (half price!!)  that were pretty much the same size - so I used those. I omitted the Memo Pins and Small Talk Stickers - just decorating the trophies.
I love these simpler ones too!
In case you aren't familiar with these Ranger plastic trophy cups, they are about 2 1/8" tall so the whole thing with the tree inside is a mini 4 3/4" -  SO CUTE on shelf or mantel!  And these last 3 that are less obviously for Christmas can be left out all winter!
Are you ready for the holidays?!
