Tutorial for Paper Christmas Tree

how to make a christmas tree out of a paperback book

This is the cutest Christmas TreeTutorial (here) made from a paperback book. I am sure we all have a few of those laying around that we have read.
My library offers a grocery bag full of books from their discarded book table for $1.00
I get the hardcovers and use them for my altered journals.I only use the covers so now I have a reason to use the pages.I think you could really glam them up and paint them as well as adding some other bits.
I got the idea from Freda's Blog (here)
Thanks Freda.

Oh I so wanted to try this myself but seen to have run out of time. Last week i spent googling ideas like this to do. Your tree is wonderful.

It has been a LONG time since I've seen one of these. Really neat, aren't they? Merry Christmas to you and your sweet hubbie, Maggie!

I have made these trees when i first started crafting. I sprayed it green with paint in a can and then put glitter all over it. Thank you for reminding me of a fun project.
