Origami Christmas Tree Card

This is literally a classic, I presented this design to the world 8 years ago and since then it’s gone around the world! And why not, these 3D effect Christmas tree cards are so so lovely.

YOU WILL NEED

Please note you can decide on any colour scheme!

1 x A4 sheet of card or an A5 card blank for the card

2 x A4 sheets of card for the tree.

A scrap of card for the tree trunk

Glue or glue dots

Paper scissors or scalpel and cutting mat

A5 Envelope

METHOD

For the body of the tree you will fold four sections of card in four different sizes. Cut out four squares of card 6cm x 6cm, 8cm x 8 cm, 10cm x 10cm and 12cm x 12cm .

Fold in half diagonally one way. Score with your fingernails and open back out.

And in half diagonally the other way. Score with your fingernails and open back out.

Fold each square in half vertically one way. Score with your fingernails and open back out.

Then in half vertically the other way. Score with your fingernails and open back out.

Now pinch in each side so you form a flat triangular shape.

To finish the shape fold two of the flaps forwards.

Repeat this for all four of the peices.

Next layer them up from the largest at the bottom to the biggest at the top. Lay them on top of the card blank, if you are making your own blank simply fold the A4 sheet in half width ways.

Attach them to the card using glue or glue dots, tucking them into each other a little as you go.

Press down firmly.

Cut out a bucket shape for the base and a star for the top. If you have any glitter card you can use this for an extra festive look.

I hope whoever you send your card to loves it!

OMG how young do I look! x
