A little paper Christmas Tree! TUTORIAL



The latest issue of GCD Studios' "The Paper Cut" has been released!  You have got to check out all the tutorial and inspiration in this issue!




One of my favorite projects I recently did was a simple little Christmas tree, and I'm going to share with you how I did it!


1.  Cut two circles of each size, starting with 7" as the largest, and going down to 1.5", in half inch increments.  This will give you 12 different sized circles for your tree.



2. With wrong sides together, stitch around the circle, but leave about a 1.5" opening.  Fill each circle with Poly Fill batting. (To give some weight to the base of your tree, you could fill the largest base circle with some dried rice or beans.)


3. Once all the circles have been stuffed, stitch the openings closed.


4. At this point, you can stack your circles.  There are different ways to do this.  You could run a string through all of the circles right up the center, starting at the bottom, and then leave some threads at the top so that you can hang your tree.  You could also use a wooden bamboo skewer or dowel and pierce through the holes to provide some more stability.  Or you could do what I did and just use glue dots to attach one circle to the next.






I just love this little tree!  Break out some scraps of green papers and start cutting some circles!  :)
