Another Book Tree

This picture does not even come close to showing how sparkly this little tree is in real life – but here you go!  To do this one I stacked pages torn from a book (that same poor dictionary!)  and stacked them on a bamboo skewer.  The pages were torn – instead of cut.  I made cardboard squares from the backing of a DSP pack as a template from 3 1/2″ down to 1″ and put a cardboard layer between every 3 pages. 

When I was satisfied with the stack I sprayed the tree with spray adhesive and rolled it in glitter.  The cardboard layers helped support the pages during this step.  The base is a wooden spool wrapped in Champagne Glimmer paper.  The topper is a small ornament that is hot glued to the very point of the skewer.  I’m creating a glitter forest around here!  Hugs, Fran
