Make Cupcake Liner Christmas Trees {Holiday Tutorial}!!

Please… PLEASE… pleeeeease tell me that I’m not the ONLY one that has Christmas FEVER!
Hi Friends!
My name is Desirée and I blog at The 36th AVENUE.
For this month I decided to surprise Jen with a little Christmas cheer!
I love it here… if Tatertots was a campground I would have a year pass!
So as you can imagine… I am going to enjoy every minute of today.
This is what I came up with: Cupcake Liner Christmas Trees…
Are they FUN or what?!
{You are more than welcome to start singing Christmas Carols now }
This is such an easy and affordable project.
It is perfect to make them as a family or with girl friends on a cold Christmas Evening…
All you need is 12×12 Cardstock, Cupcake Liners, and Tape.
First of all make the cones with your cardstock.
Tape the ends well so the cones hold their shape. Then cut the excess of the bottom so they can stand straight.
The amount that you cut will determine the size of your tree.
This next step is when Miss Fun joins the party.
Cut the center of your cupcake liners.
All you want is the ruffle part…
After you are done start taping the ruffles from the bottom to the top.
You many need to use multiple ruffles for one layer of the tree.
Don’t even worry about it… It will look GREAT at the end!
Before you reach the top cover the tip of the tree with one of the centers of the liners.
After it is taped and secured finish the last ruffle layer… and guess what?
As I was working on this project I thought it would be adorable to give cupcakes instead of cookies this year to all of my neighbors.
So I came up with a little Cup Cake Liner Christmas Card to wish Merry Christmas to my cul-de-sac.
I would love for you to visit and CHECK the little Christmas Card TUTORIAL out!
Jen… Thank you so much for having me another month!

    What a cute idea. I have a question for you: I write for Marygrove College’s Master in the Art of teaching program. Every now and again, we like to put together a new free resource for teachers. This time, we’re putting together a holiday craft resource to give them some last-minute ideas.

    Would you mind if we featured your Cupcake Liner Tree in it? You would, of course, receive full credit and a link back to your site.

    Have a nice weekend.
