The topic: So, finally decided to share the paper tree


Back in February, I assembled the Heirloom Christmas Tree from SVGCuts. I took some photos, but not as many as I usually do and I'm kicking myself in the butt for that. I wanted to get this up before the holiday season, in case anyone wanted to make one for themselves or as a gift.

Anyway, here's what I have. (I'll be making another one in the coming weeks, the paper is cut and this one is a green tree which I hope to give to my vet's office).

Clicking on a picture will take you to a bigger photo in my photo gallery; clicking on that picture will open an even larger photo.

In the process of folding the tree pieces

The slow process of gluing the pieces together

Down to the the final assembly step. Having already glued them in sections makes this part easier.

Looking inside of the tree.

The outside of the finished tree.

The tree in the background with the "bulbs" added and the tree base with the lamp in front.
The tree base assembly was pretty basic. Not a whole lof of things that can go wrong if you follow Mary's tutorial.

And the final product.

How it looks in the dark with the light on.

I have multi colored bulbs for the green tree and have an idea for inking the edges in white (Mary did this with one of her trees), but I'd like to have it be a little thicker, like real snow. I need to do some testing to see what I can come up with.

Anyway, it was fun, albeit challenging, to put together. I'm looking forward to the next one.
