Kerstboom/Christmas Tree


Are you having a wonderful Christmas?
Need some craft to play with the children?
How about folding some Christmas trees......
You can add them to a card or have the children stick them on some white drawing paper
and make some nice drawings around the tree.

Supplies:
decorated paper
cardstock or white drawing paper
glue
maybe some stamps
crayons
scissors

Start with cutting some squares:
 3"'x3", 2 1/2"x 2 1/2", 2"x2" and 1,5"x 1,5" out of the decorated paper.

Fold them according the instructions above ( or when you
rather watch a video tutorial, I found you one HERE) and
 you end up with 4 different size pieces like you see here:

Then you stack them from large to small
and stick them on a card.
Take a look at my cards for inspiration.

Have a creative day!
