DIY: Book Page Tree

DIY: Book Page Tree
This year I have kept my decor simple as always, but I also kept it 
neutral.  I have used household items for decorations such as books,
glitter, old boxes, extra fabric that I had in my closet and well you get the picture.

As you may re-call, last year I made a paper wreath.  This year to coordinate
with my wreath, I made these paper trees out of the same old book I used last year.

These trees were simple to make, all you need is an old book,
a thin cardboard or poster board,  lots of tape or glue, a pencil and scissors.
I did not want to work with glue this time, I was all glued out, so I used tape instead.  
First cut out your card board and form a cone.
Make sure the bottom is even so that it doesn't tilt.
tape it, glue it or even staple it, whatever works for you.

Once your cone is formed, take a sheet of your book and roll it. 
You may use a pencil to do this, it will give your sheet a curled look.
When your sheet is curled, cut it in half the long way to get two strips.

Begin taping/ gluing our sheets to your cone starting from the bottom.
Work your way around it and up the cone.
 For the very top of your cone, make a small cone with your paper
making sure the edges are curled up and glue it to the top of your tree.
 Book Page Tree
Once you are done, you will have a paper tree.
Remember, for this little project you may use any kind of paper you wish.
Happy Crafting!
