What You'll Need Materials Adjustable circle cutter Green card stock (Mohawk Felt Leaf Green #C12355 and Esse Texture Verde #C1650, 8 1⁄2"-by-11") Bone folder Scissors Wooden skewers Wooden spools Gold beads Hot-glue gun and glue sticks Craft knife (Martha Stewart Craft Knife) Instructions For large Christmas trees, use an adjustable circle cutter to make 2-, 3-, 4-, 5-, and 6-inch-diameter circles from green card stock (for small trees, omit the 6-inch circle). Fold each circle in half four times with a bone folder. While circles are folded, snip off the tip of each piece using a craft knife, forming a very small hole in the center. Place smallest circle on the pointed end of a wooden skewer (we used 12-inch skewers), letting the tip poke through the hole in circle. With a hot-glue gun, dab underside of circle, where paper and skewer meet. Hold for 10 seconds to secure. Working one at a time from smallest circle to largest, slide remaining circles onto the skewer; secure with glue. Insert the bottom of skewer into a spool; remove, and cut skewer to desired height (we cut ours to 6, 9, and 10 inches), keeping in mind that only spool should be visible beneath the standing tree. Return skewer to spool; secure with glue. Add a dot of glue to top of skewer, and attach a gold bead.
