A Christmas tree with paper plates?

Yes, it sounds weird, but that’s the challenge I took on in November 2010. Mind you, it wasn’t the first time because in 2006 I had also participated in the “Trees of Hope” competition that takes place every year to benefit the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario.

This time there was an additional challenge: in the category I had chosen (purity) all the ornaments had to be white; only a few touches of red or gold were permitted.

Since I love bright colours (as you can see in my Animaplates projects), this rule was going to push me to create things I had never done before. And I rather liked that idea, wouldn’t you? I ended up creating five different angels, ducks, sheep, a bunny, snowmen, a merry-go-round complete with horses and even Santa’s sleigh pulled by paper plate reindeer.

I will publish some of these projects as the year unfolds, starting with the reindeer because they can be used as a way to approach many themes other than Christmas. Become a member, print the project guides and you’ll know all about it!

P.S. The Animaplates tree shared the first prize in its category and we also won the People’s Choice Award.
