Origami Christmas Tree Tutorial

If you are like me and you need very specific instructions, this tutorial is for you.To make the origami tree you'll need patterned paper cut to the following sizes: 3" x 3", 2 1/2" x 2 1/2", 2" x 2" and 1 1/2" x 1 1/2". You will follow the steps below with all 4 pieces of paper.

Step 1: fold paper in half. Step 2: Open. Step 3: fold diagonally then open.

Step 4: Fold diagonally the other way. Step 5: Open Step 6: Fold in half along the step 1 fold.

Here's where it gets a little tricky. Step 7: Press the right side of the top fold down. Do the same to the left side.

You have formed a triangle, as seen in number 8. Step 9: Take the top layer's triangle tip from the bottom right and fold it towards the center and down. Step 10: Do the same to the right triangle tip. Now, do the 10 steps with the other 3 squares and stack them, adding a little adhesive to each top triangle tip. You can add a star, trunk, ornaments, a tree skirt, gifts, whatever. Have fun!
