Mr. Willowby's Christmas Tree is one of the sweetest books around. It's the story of how one tree becomes the perfect tree for many people, and animals, as it keeps getting clipped shorter and shorter and passed down to someone else. Apparently it was made into a 30 minute TV special in 1995 - I wish it would be aired again because I would love to see it.

Sarah at The Small Object has a wonderful tutorial called Stacking Fabric Christmas Trees. The only thing I've done is use paper instead of fabric. If you'd like you can add a few more levels to the tree as I have and make it a perfect go-along with Mr. Willowby's Christmas Tree. They are super easy to make so have fun and be sure to thank Sarah for such a wonderful tutorial!
