What you need:
Supplies / ingredients:
- A piece of A4/US Letter paper
Fold it diagonally to make another bending line.
Grab the upper right corner and fold along the line as shown. Then cut the rectangular strip off.
Turn the paper, fold it evenly and thoroughly in half, as shown.
This is how our square should look!
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.obrazek
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.obrazek
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
