Paper Christmas Trees Craft Using different-size circle punches, have the kids punch circles from different shades of green cardstock or scrapbook paper. Using a standard hole punch, have them make the "ornaments" from various bright colors of paper. Use glue stick to glue green circles together in a triangular shape (to resemble a Christmas tree). Glue small colored dots all over green circles as ornaments. Punch stars using a star punch for the tree topper; glue to the top of tree. Clip a clothespin to the bottom as the trunk.
