    Did anyone else use three tree templates? I did and loved it. That way, everyone at the table gets a better and beautiful view. And I did two, one for red and one for white. although the white was chilled. Most Floridians like everything cold. LOL

    You can enlarge it on a copy machine. Most copiers have an enlargement feature and then you just print it.

    I just saw this on TV in Sydney (we are lucky down under - we get a bonus of all Martha's shows of past week on Sunday mornings) I followed BethFox instructions went to video clicked on the x where it says "CLOSE" lo

    The directions and hot link to the template came up when I went to print. Still working on the 200% issue ;)

  • hudgins53 27 Dec, 2008

    Does anyone have ANY ideas on how to enlarge this to 200%? My computer will only print the one page. I figured that I would enlarge it by hand.

  • beardiebabe 27 Dec, 2008

    Impossible to enlarge this to 2 pages! Someone needs to go back to the drawing board!

    I have been trying over and over to get onto the page where I can get the template and instructions and I hgo around and around. I can't be that stupid. what gives?

    I love being able to get all this good information on Martha's web site. I have spent a lot of time trying to find templates and/or instructions--and I'm pretty computer literate. This site used to be much more user friendly. Wish they'd go back to that. Thanks for the hint on how to find the info.

    Even though the template won't come up they have your email address so they can send you tons of commercials. The site is set up by geeks for geeks not normal people trying to nice for xmas

    If you want the template, click on the small X on the top of the video before it starts. This will close the video and open the written directions and template link.

    Hi Martha,
    I made these beautiful bottle covers for myself, my mum and sisters for Christmas. I used Swarovski crystals as embellishments. Everyone loved them !
