Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming,
"WOO HOO, what a ride!"

Fun Christmas trees!

These great ideas float around every year and I love checking them out, especially the ones that involve books. So clever!  Click the link below to see trees made from other interesting recycled products. 

Postcard, Magazine, Book and Shredded Paper Treespostcards

These Christmas trees have been created from postcards, magazines, books and even shredded paper. The top gift tree was created by cutting and folding postcards into gift boxes and then layered to form a tree. Too many magazines on your hands? The middle tree was constructed from hundreds of magazine face cutouts, folded and then arranged in a tree shape. If you like white Christmas trees, make use of your shredded papers. Another way to use magazines and books when you are done is to fold them into Christmas tree shapes like on the bottom right.


  1. Cute! I thought the third one was cowbells at first. DUH!

  2. We used to have one of the last trees in our home growing up. Not sure if it was a book or magazine. I kind of like that shredded paper one. My cats would have fun with it!

  3. Very creative. I like the idea of making a book into a small table top Christmas tree.
