What are you most proud of? I'm quite proud of the fact that someone recently told me at a craft show that they had seen several trees at a previous show but mine were far better and far more interesting. That made me smile.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Start with cheap wire! Embrace your mistakes and learn from them. Do your research, too. There are many tutorials online to make the trees. Take bits and pieces from each and make the design your own!

Didn't see the question about the toggle til just now. There are cord ends that you can use with the satin cords but if you don't like them, you can always make a loop and wrap part of the loop with wire, creating the "loop" end of a hook and loop. Then run the other end through a jumpring and attach a hook or create your own wire hook and wrap the ribbon around the wire (just like you did on the loop side).

YES your trees come out like mine I get the same compliments and it feels great and I think the secret is the tree has to make itself your tree looks like a real tree excellent work
