I really wanted a Christmas tree. We had just moved from Oregon and left our boxed one in storage and I really did not want a fresh live one with all the complications. What to do?

Then a dream of a paper tree came to me. The resulting tree did not look like the dream but it was even nicer in a way. This one was made out of a  Canadian local news franchise called SNAPD in Ontario.

Yours will look different of course but this instructable is just to get you started and maybe start a whole new family tradition!

Step 1: The Structure Inside

I placed the 2 by 4 plank into the tree stand. Then I used meat trays to make the gradated levels. They did not need to be taped for teh hole was cut small enough that they stayed in place. You could glue in place if you need to.
