Tube of choice.
Scrap of choice.
I’m using one by Krissys Scraps
Called Dear Santa
It is a PTU kit.

Open a 600x600 new image.
Open tube & scrap supplies of choice.

Open a christmas tree tube.
Paste as a new layer.

Open a mix of presents.
Resize 50% or 40% if you want
a variety in sizes.
Paste along the bottom of the tree.
I also did two other presents

on the bigger ones.

Add a drop shadow to the presents.

Choose a few christmas cookies.
Resize each one 20%
Paste along the tree.
I did 3 different cookies & paste two of
each on the tree.

Paste near the top of the tree.
Add a drop shadow to it.
Resize a box 50%
Paste at the ribbon on top of the wreath.

Open berry branches
Paste on bottom layer &
beside the christmas tree.

Arrange to appear they are
peeking out from under the tree.
You may have to duplicate once
& move down the copy layer of berries.
Do this on each side of the tree.

Paste a different color of berries on top of
the first layer of berries.
One branch per side of the christmas tree.
