A few weeks ago I happened to find a tutorial to make a Christmas tree from scrapbook papers or cardstock. I filed it away 'to do' not sure when or if I'd make it for this season. My sweet grandmother is turning 90 tomorrow and is now in a nursing home...I wanted to give her a little something so I decided to try my hand at one of these trees. She doesn't have any real space to "decorate" for Christmas so I thought this was perfect to sit on her nightstand. I think it turned out pretty cute! I wanted to embellish it more but ran out of time. I think it would be really cute with some buttons maybe :) Go figure...buttons? Me? Anyway, here are some pictures and here is the link to the tutorial I found: http://kimemories.typepad.com/celebrate_life/2009/12/12-days-of-christmas-day-3.html
I wasn't able to figure out how to contact them, so I hope it's okay to link them here since I'm not using it for commercial purposes :) If you try one, please send a picture! I'd love to see!
