Today I would like to show you how I made this cute little Teabag Xmas Tree, it is very easy, I promise, it has to be or I wouldn’t of been able to do a tutorial .
I sheet of Green Plaid Paper from Nitwits Download Joyful Hearts
PLEASE NOTE THAT AT ALL STAGES USE YOUR BONE FOLDER TO CREASE
Cut 4 square from Green Plaid Paper 1 x 2” Sq, 1 x 1.3/4” sq, 1 x 1.1/2” sq, 1 x 1.1/4” sq.
Starting with the 2” Square fold in with patterned side upwards fold in half across the middle of the square,
Open out and turn square around so previous crease is diagonal fold the square in half across the centre again.
Open out square and turn over,so plain side is facing you, then fold in half diagonally to make a triangle. now fold the square in half
Open out square turn around and repeat previous step.
Open up square and fold into triangle as above (you will find it falls easily into this shape if you have used your bone folder on each step).
Now fold both sides of the triangle into the middle, making the same shape as above.
Now repeat all steps on the remaining 3 squares.
Open up the flaps on the 2nd Largest Square and glue largest square on top of the smaller one as shown (cannot think how to explain this more clearly ).
Do the same with the rest of the shapes until you have your tree, cut off the points on the base of the tree.
I have added a glittered star to the top of my tree. Hope you made sence of the tutorial, any queries just e-mail me. For more info on the materials and embellies on this card, just pop over to me blog here
