My simple, but elegant, paper tree ornaments

Paper trees - Oh Tannenbaum!
When the hurricane blew in to the New York area and we were without power (only for a very short time in our house - GRATEFUL!), I did this craft. I needed something `simple, but elegant' to insert in my card for an annual card swap I do.
**All it took was two-sided scrapbook paper. That's it! The more beautiful and embellished the papers, the more beautiful your trees.
**Just cut a circle in half (I used a plate for a template) and fold. It's all up to you as to how wide you want to make it.
**The rest is up to you, too. I glued the folds down - you don't have to. I also added a star on top. I found a big package of stick-on glittery stars in Michaels. You can glitter your branches, you can add ornies. Make them your own. I added trunks made from some wood splits I had in my craft drawer (I have NO idea why I originally bought them!!). I also made a loop of raffia on top. You can do whatever YOU want. Use ribbon, use twine...GO FOR IT!
So, here are mine. Show me your creations! HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!
