Folding christmas trees














I like folding. I know it's still november but look at this Christmas trees! It's easy to make. Follow the steps above. It's nice to make a lot of trees (that's why I post this now). If you make a hole in the top, you can hang them with fishing line. For example in the Christmas tree or on a branch or mobile. You can also use them for wrapping presents. I used wrapping paper from Blafre!
Send me a picture of your folded Christmas trees!

  2. Ditto on the question about the size of the paper. I can't wait to try this with some pretty cardstock!

  4. Fifi, on step 4 push your finger up inside one of the openings, it will make a waffle cone shape. Then press that shape flat. I hope that helps.

    I was able to get to step 4 and then I get lost too. Even with the waffle cone/finger folding directions but I absolutely love these. Is there somewhere that has written instructions to go along with the photos?
