I made this particular one for my son’s playroom so I left it bright and sprinkled some vintage mica flakes on. I have added my own tutorial below and you can also find more information with a video at Martha Stewart *yes, I love her*

Recycle a Magazine into a Whimsical Christmas Tree
This is probably my *most favorite* project thus far for the holiday season! I thought these magazine/book trees were something new; however, they have been around for ages. I love the whimsical vintage look they have…they make my heart pitter patter!
You want to start with a magazine or soft cover book. I used a Real Simple Magazine ~ the colored pages are amazing; however a black and white print would also look fabulous! You want to roll the binding back and forth to break the spine and make it pliable to work with.
Step Two ~ Taking each of the pages you have just folded, you want to make a second fold. Starting with the upper right hand corner of each page, fold again into the spine of the magazine.
