It's never too early to start making these Snow-Kissed Cardboard christmas Trees. I need to collect enough cardboard so I can make a whole forest! I love projects that use recycled materials, it makes for an economical craft. I was wondering if it would not be quicker to give the cardboard a wash of white paint before it is cut into petals? And what using a punch to punch out all those petals, that might make the project move along more quickly.

I think those are both very plausible time savers. Especially when you're making a whole forest. I also want to make at least 5 of these to brighten up my side table so I may just use your suggestions! Thanks!! - Krista, Editor, AllFreePaperCrafts
