The secret of your own heart you can never know;
but you can know Him who knows its secret.

Christmas Packaging

If you are a crafter, one of the funnest things about Christmas is making cute tags and cards. This little tree is made out of book paper. Simply punch or cut out 5 tree shapes, ink the edges, and fold in half longways. Punch or cut one tree shape out of book paper to use as your base. Glue that to a tag. Carefully glue your folded trees to the base with a thin layer of glue on the folded tree edge. Place the first folded tree in the middle. Then add the other four trees (two folded trees on each side very closely to the middle of the base tree)the same way. This will create a little tree of "pages" that will add dimension to your tag. I used a quick drying craft glue like Scotch Quick-Dry Adhesive. You need to make sure the "pages" of your tree do not stick together by carefully running your finger between each "page" as they dry.
