Need one last Christmas card? This rolled tree is sure to impress your card recipients.

Cut two 2-1/2″ x 12 strips of paper. Cut 10 pieces from the strips starting at 3-1/2″ and reducing each piece by 1/4″  in width (this is to fit a 4-1/4″x5-1/2″ card). Roll the pieces of paper around a pencil, dowel or paint brush.
Remove dowel, place adhesive on the inside edge of the paper, re-roll paper and adhere edges.

Cut 1/2″ x 2″ piece of brown cardstock and roll in same fashion as above.  Adhere to center of card using a strong adhesive like Inkssentials Glossy Accents. Adhere rolls of paper to form tree, staring with the longest piece and working upwards.

At the top of the tree cut a small piece from remaining roll to use as a base to hold your star. Cut two small stars from white cardstock using Lifestyle Crafts Nesting Stars. Adhere the larger star to the top of the tree, then the smaller star on top of this one. Cover the small star with Christmas Red Stickles,
