I save leftover scraps of wrapping paper, scrapbooking paper, fabric etc. I just can’t let pretty paper go to waste. This project is great for all those small scraps of paper you may have saved or you could upcycle an old ripped gift bag. Any type of pretty paper would work perfect for this Christmas paper tree decor!
- Paper Mache Cones (I used 10.63 x 4 inches and 7 x 3 inches)
- Tacky Glue
- Scrapbook Paper, Wrapping Paper, or Gift Bags (any or all)
- Pen or Pencil
Cut out a template for the leaves of the paper tree and set it aside. I just free handed a shape – about 1.5 inches long and 1 inch wide. You can do any shape you want, just make sure to taper it on one end. That will help with gluing it on the cone. If you have a heart shaped punch you could also use that.
