Watch Us Wednesday with Tammy: Lunch Bag Kraft Christmas Tree

It's Tammy, and I have a fun little project to share making your very own paper Christmas Trees from Lunch Bag Kraft.

The supplies you need include:
Lunch Bag Kraft cardstock.
* Wooden Bobbin
* Dowel Rod
* Stamps to decorate
* Glitter
* Embellishments

To start, you will need to cut some circles from Lunch Bag Kraft cardstock in the following sizes.

  • 6.25 inches
  • 5 inches
  • 4 inches
  • 2.75 inches
  • 1.5 inches

You can use an electronic cutting machine or utilize those resources in your house such as trace around bowls and cups.
At this point, I stamped my circles randomly with some snowflake Images for a decorative touch.

Next I folded my circle in half.
Fold in Half Again.
And Again!
And one more time! :-)
Next you will need to snip the tip off.
The Next step (not pictured) is to now open up your folded circles and fold accordion style.  

You will now repeat the process for the other circles.
Next you will place your dowel rod into your wooden bobbin and stack the folded circles.  For a touch of glitz, you may want to add a touch of glitter to the edges before stacking them.

Nottinghill Seam binding was added to the top; tied off in a fussy bow embellished with some jingle bells. 
A star was die-cut from C-Flute Corrugated Kraft Cardstock and painted for a shabby vintage look. 

Here's the finished tree. Fun and cute and easy to make.
