3d Christmas Tree with Tutorial

IThis is a super fun 3d tree. This is an origami Christmas card that would be a fun project for kids to make. I got the idea from an old issue of Pack-O-Fun Magazine.

To make the tree, you will need:

  • 1 piece of 6" patterned paper. 


Step 1: Cut out a 6 inch circle of patterned paper.
Step 2: Fold the circle in half and then in half again.

Step 3: Fold the quarter circle into thirds, radiating from the point.
Step 4: Open up paper so it is a half circle again. Now, fan-fold along previously folded lines.

Step 5: The top picture shows the fold that you do NOT cut on. Flip it upside down. You want the 2 folds and 2 ends side. Using sharp scissors, cut 3 v's like the bottom picture.


Step 6: Here's a picture of the back. Place some adhesive in the folds.

Step 7: Flip your tree over and adhere it to card front.


Optional idea: Make 2 trees and adhere together. Thread string through the top and use as an ornament or on top of a gift.
