Origami Christmas Tree Fold and How to Cut and Layer Card Stock - VIDEO



Have you seen the "Christmas Tree Paper Fold" before? If not, I think this pretty origami fold for your cards will delight you! It's a super easy technique and uses only four different size squares which measure 3" x 3", 2 1/2" x 2 1/2", 2" x 2" and 1 1/2" x 1 1/2". Once you've got the folding down pat, you'll want to make more of these paper trees! I've created a video tutorial for you with each step by step instruction, as well as lots of card samples - and an ornament too! Also, at the beginning of the video, I offer a little instruction on how to cut and layer card stock, which I hope is helpful for those of you who are new to stamping.



Card Layering Measurements:
  • Card Base: score a piece of 11" x 8 1/2" card stock at 4 1/4" & cut at 5 1/2" OR scored at 5 1/2" & cut at 4 1/4" = two 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card bases when folded
  • First card stock layer: 5 1/4" x 4"
  • Second card stock layer: 5" x 3 3/4"
  • Third card stock layer: 4 3/4" x 3 1/2"
