cardboard christmas trees are my fave

you are my fave: cardboard christmas trees
Here’s an idea for trees you don’t have to water or put a fence around so your kids don’t break the ornaments.

To make your own you’ll need:
- cardboard (I used a science fair display board)
- razor blade
- mini lights

Step One: Trace triangles onto cardboard.
Step Two: Carefully cut triangles out with razor blade.

Step Three: With razor blade or scissors, make holes  just big enough for lights to fit through.
Step Four: Stick lights through holes, plug in and be dazzled.

    I do not know if it’s just me or if everyone else experiencing problems with your website. It appears as if some of the written text within your content are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too? This may be a issue with my browser because I’ve had this happen previously.

    Thank you

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something that not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about. I’m very
    happy that I came across this during my search for something regarding
    this.
