This beautiful tree came from "The Creativity Exchange" at http://www.thecreativityexchange.com/2010/12/fabric-covered-poster-board-christmas-tree-cones.html (be sure to read the bottom of this post)
And this is my tree. My first attempt. I didn't have a poster board like she used so I tried using a 12x12 piece of scrapbook paper. Mine is Ok but it's not like hers. I think the biggest difference and most important one is that hers is much taller and skinnier. I didn't have a candle stick that I wanted to use for this project so I used a champagne flute.
I just finished making a few tree cones for my niece. I think they turned out very pretty.
