Select three coordinating pink prints. Punch eight circles from two different prints for a total of 16 circles. Set these aside.
Cut the rest of your paper into 1"x3" strips. To add more dimension to your trees, cut half of the strips into ¾"x3". Hot glue the strips together in loops (with the prints facing out) and glue them directly onto the foam in varying patterns. Where desired, add ribbon loops as well.
For the circles, put two of them on a pin at a time and bend them in towards the pin in a “crumpling” motion. Then stick the pin and circles directly into the tree, stacking them around the top of the cone. Repeat until cone is covered.
Select three coordinating pieces of blue paper. Punch multiple 1" circles from each print. Repeat the process listed above to decorate your tree.
Finish by weaving ribbon around the circles.
Select five coordinating green prints. Punch half of each page into 1" circles. Cut the remaining pieces into 1"x 3" strips. Hot glue the green strips together in loops (prints facing out here as well) and adhere them with hot glue directly to the tree in your desired pattern. Add in ribbon loops where desired.
Take your circles and, repeating the process listed under the “pink tree,” crumple and attach them directly to the empty spaces between the loops in the tree.
