Sad Little Tree

Saw this cute little tree over at 2 peas a couple weeks ago and thought it would be a great use for some scraps I have had for a while.
I'm not the best person for following directions.
I am more of a see-and-make person.
So, unforunately I didn't follow these instructions when I made mine, but if anyone else wanted to make it, I would highly recommend them!


My tree is Ok.
The paper is too wide and I took the cheater's way out and used a coned piece of paper instead of buying the foam cone.
And as I reached the top of the tree, I started to run out of paper, which made it even more challenging.
I put this little wonky, Charlie Brown Christmas tree on the little side table in my dining room with a sign...Don't touch!
If someone looks at it too hard it will fall apart I'm sure.
In fact a couple strips already fell off on their own because it is a little dry in the apartment these days, so by Christmas it should be bare.
But I made it.
And I used up my Stampin Up paper scraps from last year.
And if you don't look too closely, you might actually think it is cute.

Well, I think it's cute. I can totally relate to the "no dircections" approach. This is how I do most things!

I couldn't even post my sad little tree. I bought a foam cone, but my pins wouldn't hold. I had to take it apart in fear that a pin would fall out and either my cats or kids would eat it.

I do think yours is cute!
