How to Make a 3D Tree Out of Paper
1 – Download and print the 3D Paper Christmas Tree Template. Choose from coloured or B/W and 3 designs; plain, spots or stars.
2 – If needed, colour in your template.
3 – Cut out the four scalloped tree pieces.
4 – Fold along the dotted lines to make tabs.
5 – Start with the smallest scalloped piece. Apply glue to the tabs and stick it to the smallest top section of the Christmas tree sheet. It will make a little arch.
6 – Repeat this process with the other three scalloped pieces, working your way down the Christmas tree in order of size.
7 – If you want to, you can glue on some extra decorations like pom-poms, glitter or buttons.
