    I can remember making trees like these with my grandmother - we used magazines the size of Readers Digest or National Geographic!

    Thanks for the memories!

    Yes, and we spray painted ours and decorated with buttons, yarn, whatever we kids could find!
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    A real walk down memory lane. We made those too. I think we sprayed them gold.

    I remember these from years back. They are clever and a fun craft for the young ones.

    We made these as well. I like the height you get using newspaper instead of a smaller book. We did our out of Readers Digest magazines and painted (spray) gold. Kids helped make them for their grandparents. Thanks for the memories.
    God Bless,
