Christmas Tree with Nesting Scallops

This was definitely a fun Christmas Tree to make (all 3 pictured at the bottom of this post)...thanks to Julie from my Wishful Scrapbooking Group for sharing this link with the directions on how to make this project.

I thought it would be more sturdy to use these paper mache boxes I bought at the craft store for the base. I painted them, and brushed some stickles over them to make them sparkle as well as brushing stickles on the tree branch edges for the sparkle.


I cut and laid out my scalloped tree parts to get the colors in the order that I wanted them, using all paper from my stash and scraps.


Here are the 3 trees I made using 3 of the pedestals I just finished making...I'm having fun crafting but not getting a whole lot else done.
