  • Scrapbooking paper (two-sided if you can find it)
  • Silhouette Cameo or scissors
  • Glue (I like Aleene’s Thick Tacky Glue — note: this is an Amazon affiliate link)
  • Lollipop sticks

Instructions

1 – Cut out Christmas trees in three different sizes. Mine were roughly 5 inches tall, 4 inches, and 3 inches. I used design #22548 from the Silhouette Store, but you could easily cut these by hand.

You’ll need four trees of each height, so four 5-inch trees, four 4-inch trees and four 3-inch trees. If your paper is double-sided, you only need two trees of each height.

If you cut your trees by hand, you’ll need to add a slit to the top of two trees and the bottom of two trees.christmas-tree-cake-toppers-by-the-party-teacher-1b

2 – Take the two bottom-slit trees and glue them back to back. Take the two top-slit trees and glue them back to back. If your paper is double-sided, you can skip this step.

3 – Slide the bottom-slit trees into the top-slit trees.
