Rolled Paper Christmas Tree

This is a simple project that I did with things I already had on hand.  I had planned on doing something from Martha Stewart's Handmade Holiday Crafts book, but midway into the project I decided to go a different direction.

This will eventually be part of my Christmas decor.  Right now however, it's in storage, so this will have to do for a picture:

First I framed a piece of green scrapbook paper and cut strips from an old book.

Then I rolled them up, and threw in some red ones too.

I arranged them how I wanted them...

...and hot-glued them to the frame.  I also added a ribbon at the bottom and a few more rolls for a trunk. That's it.  Simple, right?
