Vintage Paper Trees

I'm working on these cute book page vintage trees. I remember these from the 60's. Readers' Digest trees. I've seen them made from phone books and magazines. There was one at the Rose Bowl Flea Market that was magnificent. The vendor wanted $20 for it. I thought, "I could make that and save $20." Oh, my aching hand. And how much is a doctor's visit? The tutorial for these can be found HERE. I'm still working on them so more tomorrow.

Those are great, especially with the similar silver stands. I remember the old Reader's Digest ones. I think I may have even made a couple back then.
