lil Christmas project

I made this little tree last night, and it took maybe 45 minutes from start to finish.
Here are the instructions, for anyone who might be interested.
1)Take a 12x12 sheet of cardstock, make it into a cone shape, and use adhesive to adhere(I used scotch tape, and it worked great) If the cone does not stand perfectly, just trim the base to even it out.
2)I took 2 sheets of double sided patterned paper(so I had 4 prints to work with)..gotta love that figgy pudding..hee hee
I cut the paper into 1" by 3" strips, I used about 5o strips on here.
3)wrap the end of each strip around a pencil to curl it, and then gently slide the pencil out from the curl.
4)I love my hot glue gun, so I hot glued every paper strip to the c.s. cone.
(You could use double sided tape, etc)
I worked around the bottom of the tree first, and worked my way to the top, staggering the paper strips.
5)I inked a raw chipboard star by scenic route, added some cinnamon stickles, and then hot glued to the top of the tree.
