Oh Christmas tree...

...Oh Christmas tree.

These little trees have been appearing all over the web - some have been left plain (like mine) others have been decorated in a mutlitude of different ways.

Why are folks interested in these?

They are quick, easy and everyone has the basic materials to hand - a magazine. Yep this little tree is created from a magazine and all you need to do is fold the pages...
My tree was made from two copies of a TV magazine - I used two copies placed back-to-back to give it a bit more bulk.
The folding takes a little while to do but is quite easy.
One of the good things with using a magazine is that it is already coloured so you really don't need to do much else unless you want to.

The Friday inspiration post over on Kerryanne English's blog for the "Simply Christmas" event shows lots of super ideas that folk have come up with - do have a look at all the lovely creations that are out there............................
