Made these cute Christmas trees with old magazine papers.
I cut approx. 10-15 squares of different size of paper differing by half inch and stacked them from largest to smallest size.
So if you are starting with 5" squares, then you need 15 squares of 5" followed by 15 squares of 4.5" and then so on. Stack them on a skewer and you got a Christmas tree. How fast and easy is that !!..:)
