Greetings! Chris here and today I am excited to share this quick and easy Christmas tree I created! As a Kid I remember always making crafts creating hand made kids and how much fun it was. I thought this Quick and Easy Christmas Tree project would be perfect for the kids/grandkids to create with you! Maybe even perfect for a class room or girl scout/boy scout club project!

Quick and Easy Christmas Tree
Start, by cutting several 2 inch wide strips from Patterns & Solids paper pad. Cut these strips into 1 inch wide strips.
Next, Banner cut one edge of each of the strips.
Now, Bend/curl the edges of your banners.
Beginning at the bottom of your tree, layer banners onto tree. As the Graphic 45 papers are 2 sided , it will create the 2 paper effect! Alternate adhering one banner with snowflake side up and the next with snowflakes down. Add adhesive only to the top portion of the banners so that the bottoms can curl up.
Continue layering your banners around and up the tree.
To cover the very top, I cut a few banners in half and layered them over the tree top tip.
Punch 2 stars from glitter card stock and adhere to flat head pin.
Finish your tree by pushing pin into tree top.
I hope you are inspired to get crafty with your family and create your own Quick and easy Christmas Tree!
