"These are various types of trees made from paper. The tall gold one is made from a magazine, whole and intact. The green one is made of decorative card stock. And the smallest one is made from a page in a hymn book. They are lots of fun to make and look very nice as centerpieces for the holidays. They are not too hard to make and the two accordion style folded one are fairly quick to make. The magazine one takes some time to make because each page is folded twice!"
