*Note to self for next time I make one: 1) add a small heavy rock in the base of my tube for sturdiness, 2) add a dimensional between the small rosettes near the top that were 1/8" pleated so they are evenly spaced with the rest of the tree.
Look at all the fun Christmasy papers!!
*TIP: be very careful not to score too hard - the papers are thin and will cut all the way through. If this happens, add a li'l hot glue, push the cut closed and position that part in the back so nobody's sees it, LOL.
I used a toilet paper roll, cut down about an inch or so, and wrapped in paper and ribbon. I didn't want glue showing on the outside, so I dripped tons of hot glue down inside the tube so it attached the base to the roll. :) Be ye careful!! Hot glue HURTS! And that's how my mom lost her finger prints - too much hot glue ouies over the years. ;)
The green felt doily worked nicely as a "tree skirt" sorta thingy. I bought a package of them at the dollar store. :) Happy Crafting!!
