I am a school teacher. And I really felt my usual greeting card wasn't good enough this year.... So this afternoon, I felt I needed to let creativity hold me to craziness.... I grabed some gardener wire, some beads ( the kind you iron), funky colors paper, and my sharpies. I send the kids looking for everythin with a round shape around the classroom. They brought me back a cd, a plastic glass, a plastic box, a glass jar, a glue stick cap, and we were all set!

Here is what came out my exhausted brain: a funky paper tree, which looks like it's dancing....


i wrote on some layers, just to have fun:


I used 3 colors of paper... the kids used only 2. They just loved it and wanted to make one for christmas holidays ( tomorrow evening YAY). So we have 1 day to make them achieve a little forest of paper trees.... Come on, I've seen worse, we will have fun ahahahahaha

I love it so much taht I brought it home. LilOne loved it... I think I may try to use prettier papers to make another one.... like scrapbook paper, or even wallpaper, but with a stronger wire..... *ponders*

I like the random look of it.  And the fact that it looks like it's about to topple over at any moment.

Great job.

How cute!  I love the fact that it's dancing.  So much potential - I think scrapbook paper would be great, too!

this was too cute!  does it kinda move about a little, or is it just permanently in that one position?

you can bend the wire as you want, to change position... Smiley so it can be more or less twisted, more or less straight...
