Handmade Paper Christmas Tree

I’ve been wanting to make a Handmade Paper Christmas Tree and finally got around to it a few weeks ago!

Supplies I used:
styrofoam cone from craft store
fun Christmas paper (I printed out some digital designs from GG Digital Designs–Tinsel Town)
paper trimmer
distress ink
hot glue gun

I printed the paper (double-sided) and cut it into 1 inch by 3 inch strips, inking the edges. I also curled up one end of the strip by wrapping it around the barrel of a pen. I glued a wide band of ribbon at the bottom of the cone, then hot glued the strips onto the cone, staggering and layering them to cover the styrofoam. I think it turned out pretty cute. :)

Maybe next time I’d add a chipboard star or some glitter or something, but for now I am done!

Merry Christmas!!!
