I LOVE origami. And, I love making cards. This easy project is for an origami Christmas card that you can make with the kids.
If you are like me and you need very specific instructions, this tutorial is for you.
You Will NeedFor each tree you will 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".
Easy InstructionsYou will follow the steps below with all 4 pieces of paper.
The first 5 steps are just to make guidelines.
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!
