December 9th

Pull out your scissors and let's have a little fun cutting. I was looking for something online and came across this free pattern for a Scherenschnitte (Sharon-sh-nett) tree and loved it. I decided that I didn't want to put hearts on my tree, so after I cut out the pattern, I traced it and put candles instead of hearts. I really like how it turned out and I hope you do to. 

And if you don't want to cut two of them and sew them together, just cut one and put it on a Christmas card. Have fun!

I'm afraid I'm a little lost, how do you get the four halves to come together soo nicely?

Once you cut out your pattern, trace it on the fold of the paper you want to use. You'll have to trace it twice and then cut out two trees. Once you have two trees, line your folds up and sew them together to make the four sided tree.
Does that make sense? Let me know if you need other help. :) And have fun!
