You can see the picture at Pine Cone Christmas Tree

Material :
1 ball of Candy yarn (2 ply yarn) at Material Collection
Hook no. 4/0
Ex yarn cone
Glue to fix it

Instruction :
I make a 10 cm christmas tree. You can make it anysize you like.
For 10 cm christmas tree i need :
42 leaf with 6 dc
46 leaf with 8 dc

To make how many ch do you need.. you can calculate it like this :
Total 88 leaf x 2 ch + 1 ch = 177 ch.

After you make 177 ch,you can start a leaf one by one.
Bottom to middle
Each leaf :
ch11, start first dc at 3ch from the hook, 7dc (total 8 dc), sk 1ch, sl st at next ch.

Middle to top :
Each leaf :
ch9, start first dc at 3ch from the hook,5dc (total 6 dc),sk 1ch, sl st at next ch.

Finishing :
Put a glue from the bottom, roll up the leaf tail that you have made before until cover up the yarn cone.

Note :
Added a round carton at the top of the yarn cone to cover the loop.

I have this idea cause I need many small gifts for my relatives. I saw, I had many cards in my drawer. And The paper of them is hard and great too. I think I must do something with these beautiful card. So I tried to modified them.

Material :
Unused card with good quality of paper
Cutter, ruler, looper and pencil
Leftover yarns/thread

Instruction : (you can see at the picture too)
1. Cut the picture with cutter
2. Take a ruler to make a size of your card (depend on your card) and make a sign in the bottom of the card with pencil at each 1 cm
3. Take a looper, make a loop at the sign that you make at point 2 around.

Finishing :
Base :
R1 : Ch1, (make sc st at loop with insert a hook in it, ch 3) Repeat it around . Joint with sl st at first ch1. Note : You can start anywhere you like.
Finishing : (you can modified by yourself)
R2 : I make at every corner 7 dc at one loop, make ch3, sc at lp at R1, around except the corner.
R3 : I make at every corner (sc, hdc, 2dc at one st,dc, 2 dc at one st,hdc, sc), (2 sc at next lp, 5dc at next lp) around except at the corner. Fasten off

Tail :
Start from the middle. Ch24, sl st at ch4 from the hook, sl st to the fist ch. Fasten off.
Make 5 ply of threads, and take it to the loop at the bottom of tail. Fasten off.

Good Luck :)
