Hello everyone,  I'm Sherika over at Passionately Perfect! I'm so excited to be sharing with you today for the 12 days of Christmas holiday party! This year I challenged myself to spend less money on Christmas decor, So I'll be showing you Christmas trees made out of books....it doesn't get any cheaper than that!

While my mom was visitng for Thanksgiving, she showed me how she use to make Christmas trees out of paper! Her and her brothers did this because back then spending money on Christmas decor was unheard of!

For this project you can use a paperback book or a magazine. I used both.

Start by folding the pages.
First, fold the top right corner toward the spine to form a right angled triangle.

 Next, fold the remaining half toward the spine as well!

Then, cut off the bottom pieces of the book so that it will be able to stand up alone.

A little time consuming, but very easy!

Some gold spray paint, a star and ribbon and here ya go!!

Hope everyone has an awesome weekend!

Merry Christmas!!
