To start it by cutting them into strips, about 1/2 inch to 1 inch. We lined them up like above to get an inspiration of what our tree would look like and how many pieces we needed.
This is the frame we bought. Once we took out the back, we realized we could use the frame backing as our tree backing.
Next, as we laid down our paper strips, we trimmed as needed on the sides of each strip to make the shape of the tree. We also placed the strips a bit crooked as shown above to give the tree more dimension.
Our last step was to make a star and we thought our couple made the perfect one. We used pink construction paper as the backing to give it more of a “shining star” look.
