Merry Christmas Paper Tree

Using the papers from the December kit, I made this paper Christmas tree. Of course I first have to give credit for this inspiring idea to Jamie Harper - one of the most talented scrappers in the industry.

The body of this tree is a styrofoam cone from Michael's. I cut my papers into 1" X 4" strips and used straight pins to secure them to the cone. Then I added some of the MM holly berries.

For the title, I used white acrylic and chipboard letters. I coated them with the Silver Ice Stickles, let them dry overnight and adhered them to the paper with ZipDry.

Put a pretty bow on top and decorate you house or give as a gift this holiday season.

I love this version using this month's scrap kit papers. I hardly wanted to use them sinc they were so pretty, but I love this so much I want to make it.

Absolutely love that tree and if I have time before Christmas I am definitely going to make one for myself or someone ~ will probably have to make more than one because once I get these types of things done I never want to give them up!!
Thanks for sharing!
