I've seen Christmas trees like this one on the World Wide Web - but OH, OH, OH (or is it HO HO HO), they are so much more darling up close and personal!

<Big Happy Holiday Sigh>


Projects like this make me want to lock myself in my studio to design-and-create-around-the-clock!  I had soooo much fun making this sweet little 3-D tree and didn't want to stop crafting!  And I knew I had gone over the edge when I began talking to it!


Tree tools 


1. Start with a 12" x 6" piece of white card stock.  2. Roll into a cone shape and staple securely.  3. Trim bottom edge so the cone stands up nice and straight. (See sample below.)  4. Punch "branches" out of three patterns of coordinating Designer Series Paper5. Slightly curl each branch with a pencil.  6. Start building the tree on the bottom row.  7. Adhere top of branch to tree cone with liquid adhesive. A little dab will do.   8.  Complete each row, working up and alternating paper designs.  9. Top and embellish with whatever inspires you.
