    You’ll need: A piece of A4/US Letter paper and scissors.

    Obraz

    Fold it diagonally to make another bending line.

    Obraz

    Grab the upper right corner and fold along the line as shown. Then cut the rectangular strip off.

    Obraz

    Turn the paper, fold it evenly and thoroughly in half, as shown.

    This is how our square should look!

    Obraz

    Grab the two opposite corners, pull them together, making it flat at the same time. The harder you press the paper, the easier it will be to complete your tree.

    Now bend two triangles to the inside as shown, and then repeat on the other side.

    obrazek

    When it begins to looks like a little “kite,” cut the lower portion off!

    obrazek

    Open the first triangle and press its edge to the inside, do the same thing with the remaining three triangles.

    obrazek

    At this stage, you should be able to count four triangles on one side and four on the other.

    Note the three cutting lines! They are 1 cm / 1/2” long, and the space between them is about 2 cm/ 3/4". Use a pencil and a ruler to draw lines for you to trace if you prefer.

    obrazek

    Carefully cut through all 4 triangles, making sure not to cut through the center folding line! Do it on both sides of a tree.

    obrazek

    Now fold the 24 “twigs”!

    obrazek

    Let's do it exactly as the lines show, starting from the right triangle, turning them all like book pages.

    obrazek

    After you fold first 12 twigs, turn the tree to the other side and do the same with remaining 12 twigs.

    obrazek

    Tada! Your Christmas tree is ready!

    obrazek

    Spread out all of the branches evenly and use your 3D Paper Christmas Tree as a perfect Christmas or bedside table decoration. It will also look beautiful hanging by the window or on a real tree.

    obrazek

    You are probably wondering if you can make the same tree but in a smaller or bigger size!? Of course, you can! Just remember to use a square as a base to each tree!
