Happy Monday Authentique Paper Lovers!

I am so excited to share a little 'how to' with you!

Are you thinking about Christmas yet?
The stores are all decked out and the radio is playing Holiday Music, so I guess it's time :)
Today I have an easy and fun tutorial for a paper machae' tree.

Here's a look at the basic supplies you will need

Trace around the bottom of the tree onto some chipboard, cut out and set aside.

Next, you want to punch out your circles.  AP's Wonder Collection is so PERFECT for this project!
After your circles are punched you want to add a strip of Scor-tape, or some other strong adhesive along the bottom, this will be your first row.
Start adding your circles.  

You may want to add a touch of glue to the over lapping part of the circles.
Keep on going until you reach the top.
adding some patterned paper to your circle, then hot glue to the bottom of the tree

Now decorate the tree as you would like, I uses some lace and vintage buttons.  I adhered them to the tree with a hot glue gun.  I then glued the tree to an old wooden vintage spool
Easy and cute!
I hope you enjoyed my little project!
and thanks so much for stopping by the Authentique Blog!
