Lilly I found you Christmas tree tutorial through Mel's blog and I think it is fantastic. I can not wait to clear up the breakfast dishes so I can do it with my daughters. Thank you very much for posting it. Melanie.


Hi Lilly

I am in the UK and found this post somehow by blog hopping. I have a daughter called Lilly and we will be trying this tomorrow morning.

Thanks for the great idea.



Bonjour Lilly !

That is a wonderful tutorial ! I will be making a few of those threes to put with my snowmen collection. Thank you for doing this. By the way, that santa is way cute too !


Hi Lilly,
I've come over from Mel's blog to have a look at your tree.
I've seen them before but never close enough to figure out how the folds go so thankyou for showing us all.
I am going to hunt down some magazines and make some with my two kids :)
Merry Christmas Lilly!


What a great idea Lily - I am going to teach my little girl make one!

Thankyou for the Tutorial Lilly - I can remember doing these as a girl myself (about 25 years ago!) I recall doing them with my Nannas old Womens Weekly's.

We have just finished one and I will blog it very soon and link to your post. Just have to make a star for the top.
