My Sassafras Christmas tree

This was a fun project that I made for my craft guild's handmade gift exchange. To create this tree, I started with a styrofoam cone and glued it down on a piece of red felt that I cut into the shape of a tree skirt. Then I took a sheet of Sassafras paper and cut it into several 1 inch by 1/4 inch strips. I folded each strip in half and without flattening it, I stuck it into the foam, starting from the bottom and working my way up, and using those pins with the colored balls at the end, to mimic ornaments. It actually did not take too long to piece it all together. Then I finished it off with some ribbon, bling, and a diecut star at the top.
