Holiday Decorating: Paper Trees
Paper Star, I saw a 3D paper evergreen tree on Pinterest that I just had to hunt down a visual instruction for because the photographs didn't work for me.
On YouTube I found the video by Tuteate, How to Make a 3D Paper Xmas Tree (DIY Tutorial). I suggest watching the video a few times before you try to making one. You can stop and start the video in the sections that are more difficult like the folding in and out part. Note, the folding of the cut places is on a slant.
It took me a few tries to make the paper tree in the photograph posted here. I wasn't sure what I was doing, but confident it looks like the video...I began folding the cut sections.
The trees in the background are the conventional multiple cut out type that are easy to make as long as you remember to leave a hinge between the shapes. There are a lot of different paper ornaments on YouTube and the Internet that you can try from difficult like this tree, to easy like the string of trees in the background.
Happy Paper Cutting!
