Folded Christmas Tree

Here’s a folded Christmas Tree craft  you can make with all the scrap pieces of wrapping paper you have left.

What You’ll Need
Scrap pieces of paper

What You’ll Do

  1. Take a piece of paper and fold it in half.
  2. Fold that piece of paper in half again.
  3. Fold it one more time with the folded edges coming together to form a triangle of sorts.
  4. Take your scissors and cut an arc at the end opposite of the point.
  5. Open your paper up to reveal a flower sort of shape.
  6. Now make your folds alternate up, down, up, down, etc. Repeat steps 1 – 6 to at least 5 pieces of paper, each time making them smaller when you cut your arc.
  7. Gently stack the shapes to form your tree.
