How to Make a Folded Tree

Your child can bring the best of the season into every room with these mini spruces.


What you'll need: Double-sided scrapbook paper, stapler, scissors.

To Make: Stack four sheets of double-sided scrapbook paper and fold it in half lengthwise. Unfold and staple the stack along the crease, then refold. Position your paper so the folded edge is on the left. Cut through all eight layers from the bottom right corner to the top left corner to make a triangle. Starting from the bottom, make horizontal cuts into the right side of the triangle every 1 1/2 inches, making sure to leave 1/2 - 1 inch of space from the fold. Unfold. Working one layer of the time, fold down the top corner of each strip (you’ll create a mini folded triangle on each end). Once all the strips are folded, pull the layers apart so the tree stands on its own.
