    Very pretty. Was it hard to make?

    I like the tree. I am making an egg now for Christmas, so by next year I guess I will be making a tree.

    No, it was not hard to make. I have to fix the top between the star and tree. I am going to kind of bunch up some of the green and glue on top. That is the only thing to fix. Some people have put a bow on top and that would cover that space but I wanted a star.

    I like that so much better than the ornaments I have seen made with folded fabric. Thanks for sharing!

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    i prefer your star to a bow, & i think that green would be perfect bunched up around the top, sort of like a favpbric garland. i love all folded things, but have never seen the tree before. i love yours, maybe i'll get one made for hubby & i.

    I really like your tree.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Nice Christmas tree! Looks like a lot of folding. I also love the folded star mats I have made a few of them in the past. Is this tree similar? I mean the technique? Very pretty!
