Desktop Trees from Leslie (with an "ie" :~)

It's December 7th.
You've just remembered a small gift is needed for ...
a. a teacher
b. a co-worker
c. a neighbor 
d. a scrapsister!
The bonus is you get to play with your stash to make this gift, 
and the style can be easily changed up.

 CONE TREES!
These are kinda like eating potato chips.
I dare you to make just one!

Don't forget to add your creations to Mr. Linky!


I am thinking of kraft trees with snowflake eyelets or a plain green tree with multi-colored plain eyelets (bonus = using up old products) with LED lights inside, rows of punched borders, or how about an ombre tree made of strips of paper with the ends curled up as above?

Washi or pompom fringe garlands, a cone covered in punched stars, hearts or butterflies sewn down the centers & folded back for dimension... endless creative possibilities! Just remember to do most of your embellishing before you assemble the cone.

And if you check over at my blog later this month I will have a follow-up post with some of my own creations. The list of those "extra" gifts I will need is rapidly growing!

  4. Right, I'm making one of these for the top of my tree. I bought a metal one but it is too heavy and falls over sideways. This will be just what I need.
