Book Page Christmas Tree

Inspired by Better Homes and Gardens Christmas Ideas magazine, and Anthropologie, here is my book page tree.
The finished book page tree.
First, I cut out square cardboard templates to more easily tear the book pages into various sizes.
I tore my book pages along the cardboard template. (You could cut them for a more even look) Each template was 1/2" smaller than the one below it. Tear sheets in each size until you reach your desired tree height.
I placed a "mug plug" styrofoam shape in a terra cotta pot from my garden.
i cut sheet moss to cover the top of the pot.
I pushed a yard twig into the styrofoam piece inside the pot.
I whittled a point on the twig to slide the book pages on more easily. Start with the largest page sheets and stagger the edges.
When finished I cut the sharp point off of the top of my twig and tied a metal star to the top with jute.
This is my rustic look book page tree with torn pages.
