Scherenschnitte Christmas Trees

I have finally figured out that my absolute favorite snips to cut are the 3D ones.  I just enjoy seeing how the whole design opens up into a big space once I am done.

I didn't put up many decorations this year, so I decided to snip my own Christmas tree.  It seemed appropriate.  After I decided that I liked them, I thought that I should make some for gifts.  Unfortunately, I decided this in the last few days before Christmas.  So, I have cut two gift trees, but plan on cutting at least four or five more.  We'll see if I actually get those done.

These are about 8" x 12" and may be hung or set on a table.
