Paper Christmas Trees Decor

Wednesday, December 17, 2014





Merry Merry Everyone!  Bringing you a simple, easy and gorgeous decoration idea for your home!  I made these a few years back and loved them so much I have preserved them through the years and have made more this year!







Step 1: Grab a Magazine


Step 2: Open Magazine, leave the front cover as is, do both the covers last
Step 3: Take top right corner of the first page and fold, crease well
Step 4: Grab then the right corner again (found more in the middle now)


Step 5: Crease the second fold
Step 6: make a crease/indent on the bottom flap using the magazine as your template


Step 7: Open the fold and bend the extra , inside, using the crease as your guide
Step 8: Fold the second fold back into place and crease well
Step 9: Turn the little tree limp over


Step 10: Repeat until magazine is all done

Tips: Feather out tree when finished and play with the shape. Use tape if necessary to get the look you want. Maybe even tape the two covers together



Step 11: Paint and Embellish to your hearts content!

Here are a few examples of different variations I made and the ladies who attended November's Kreative craft night had the option of making too!
