I made these with my kids at school... they loved it and were all heading home to see if they had magazines to make more.

Something to finally do with all of those catalogs I get and don't want or need. :) I wonder how many pages you need to make a good tree. ....maybe a Target catalog can only make a Charlie Brown tree. Worth experimenting...

Marcia

Oh, I spent hours as a girl making those. What wonderful memories.

Devon

Oh, my mom and I used to make these when I was a young girl, brings back so many wonderful memories. Next year my duaghter should be old enough to do these, it might be our first Christmas craft of 2009. Thanks for sharing.

Cheryl

I remember these from when I was a kid! I was wondering if anyone would have the directions! Thanks for sharing.

Heidi Monkey

I love these so much, I just whipped one up at my desk at work. Thanks!!

I haven't thought about these for years! We used to make them from Reader's Digests too. I remember going to neighbor's houses asking for old Reader's Digests when it was time to make them. We sprayed them gold or silver, and glued tiny pom-poms to them as ornaments. Thanks for the memory!

We made these, too, but we made them out of the Sears catalog. We did some kind of double fold. I'll have to ask my mom if she remembers how we did it. Ours were painted green--and glittered, of course!

Pat Sloan

Pam

The thought of the trees cracked me up. A good keep the kids out of you hair for a while project. Here's mine, unpainted, of course!

We're going with members of my family to the coast for Christmas and I have been trying to find a small Christmass tree of some sort for the cabin. Space is at a premium so needed to be small and easy to move around. I too remembermaking these when just a kid but this is perfect for now!! Easy to transport, recyling to boot. Thanks for jogging the memory.

rachel

omg i haven't seen these in FOREVER!!!
we used to make these EVERY year.
{when i was little.}

we would spray paint them green and pour multi colored glitter on them before they dried.

wow. how did i forget about those???
my kids would LOVE to make these!!!

thanks pat.
what a great memory.

Jackie

Yay! I remember them too! What fun is that...

Carole

I remember making these Christmas trees, too, but from larger-sized magazines. After folding the page once, then it was folded in again making the base narrower. Same process--spray painted after folding and glittered. Actually, they were quite nice! (And I think this was more than 30 years ago!)

Pat

I remember this tree topic from last year when I had only recently "discovered" your blog and yahoo groups....and I was able to help you find the pattern for how to make this. I am going to do this with my youngest granddaughter one of these years......actually could have done it with two of them last weekend but it never entered my head. I think I'll print a reminder and put it in with my Christmas decorations for next year!
