After seeing the pumpkin made by boadicea (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=268026.0) I kept thinking that it would make a great winter holiday decoration. I was cleaning up my office last week and found an out-of-date university catalog that was just perfect for this, so... I spent the last few days creating a huge mess on my table (there are still scraps of paper all over the floor) making this:



The picture doesn't show the colors very well, but I used a couple of different greens as well as a gold/brown to lightly tint the edges and some of the pages. The pages are not all very even, and there are some really rough and torn edges, but since it is a tree I hope that the imperfections add to its charm.

I think that I may make a couple of smaller ones to create a little winter forest scene by my fireplace!

Thanks for looking!

I love it, saw something similar in a magazine made out of a paperback book but as someone who cannot bring themselves to 'damage' books I just couldn't do it...maybe now I've seen yours as well I'll give it a go Smiley
