Valentine Tree

Here's Monday's Valentine Idea - a little love themed tree

I don't have photos of the step-by-step- process of this but in a nut shell here's what you do:

1- Cut various papers into the following measurements:
3x6, 3x5.5, 3x5, 3x4.5, 3x4, 3x3.5, 3x3, 3x2.5 and you can go smaller if needed.

2- zigzag fold all of your cut papers.

3- wire them onto a cinnamon stick, starting with the biggest (3x6) on the bottom and work your way to the top. Add embellishments if desired and heart at the top.

4- Place creation into a clay pot and your done. These made cut little gifts. You can also hook a small photo onto a toothpick and place it in the pot as well.

Enjoy! Tomorrow we will be making Valentine cards.

I can see that this idea can be used for every holiday that comes around just by changing the papers that are used to create the tree. Another wonderful creation.
