How great is this handmade ornament from the library in Colorado Springs?

I was at an estate sale a couple of months ago and spotted this. It looked great across the room. It was not in good shape but would be easy to reproduce. It was medium weight cardboard rolled into a tree shape, beer caps posed inside up, small ornaments, and lights. The cardboard, beer caps, pot, and stick were spray painted gold. It was really sparkly and fun. I have heard from a reliable source that it was a Girl Scout craft.

I had the chance to scan some mid century softcover classics but did not purchase them because of the strong mold smell.
I recognized Ronald Searle's style right away.
Love that he got all of the elements of the story on the cover.
