The Jetson Tree

Instead of working on Christmas cards, I created another little paper tree that only took a whopping 20 minutes, start to finish.
That seemed way more achievable than the cards.

I saw this tree on this blog, which by the way is filled to the brim with AMAZING projects especially her star ornament...WOW!, and knew I wanted to try and make one myself.

Searched the web and found Sandi Genovese's template and directions HERE and Voila!

Now if you wanted to make this little tree as a card, because it does flatten, you would have to shrink the template a bit beacuse this little baby is almost 6" high.

I promptly placed this little goody right next to my other paper tree , which is falling apart just as I suspected, and asked the kid, "What do ya think?"
"Looks like The Jetson's tree"
"Wha..?"
"You know, the space family, the Jetsons..."
"I know who the Jetsons are but what do you mean?"
"All those rings and in that crazy paper, looks spacey. Be cooler if it had a robot."

I'm so proud my kid knows who the Jetsons are.
And loves Robots.

Supplies: Cardstock-Bazzill, PP-Scenic Route, Ink-Distress Ink in Black by Ranger, Buttons-from Oriental Trading, Die-Sizzix.

The kid does have a point...it DOES look like the Jetson's tree! I don't even think Kyle knows about that cartoon. Maybe Max could inform him on Saturday! Too funny!
