I remember making one of those when I was in 2nd grade in art. They are so cool. I love how you made  yours!!! It's such a "green" project.  Grin

Thanks! The tinting was definitely some trial and error, but I like the way it ultimately turned out too.

For those of you who can't bring yourselves to "destroy" a book, try using old magazines or catalogs. I've made trees from magazines and painted them green -- the effect is different than lovely tinting boadicea and DawnsTrees achieved, but it sounds like a magazine and some spray paint is the lazy craftsters version of this! And I? Am occasionally a lazy craftster.

This appeals to the bookworm in me.  This might be a silly question, but can you "close" the tree, or is it always fanned out?

smash - I am sure that spray paint would produce an interesting effect as well (and, I also, am occasionally the lazy craftster! Smiley )

flygirl88 - This one can not be closed - I took off the covers and glued the front pages and back pages together so that it would look fairly seamless and could be viewed from all sides. But, I don't see why it couldn't just be clipped (or velcroed?) so that it could later be closed - especially if it will primarily be viewed from only one or two sides. In that case, I would probably leave the covers on for stability. (hhmmm...I wonder if it would stand if you just opened it up 180 degrees -flush against a wall - rather than the full 360?)
