3-D Paper Christmas Tree

This tree made out of printed cardstock or scrapbook paper is a quick and easy table decoration you can make in a few minutes. You may choose to use white cardstock as well to give the tree the appearance of a wintery snow covered tree for a winter village scene. After being sewn, the tree stands on its own. If you make a few of these with different sizes, a forest could be created to use as decoration. You may also insert a thread at the top of the trees and they then use them as Christmas tree ornaments.

3-D Paper Figures Tutorial (If using a sewing machine)

If you do not have a sewing machine, you can still make these trees with hand sewing. Simply line up the three trees and use a paper clip to hold them together. Take a pencil and draw a light line down the center of the top tree from top to bottom. Then place the tree bundle on a soft mat and poke a hole with a needle at every 1/4 inch (about 7 millimeters). Then these can be sewn together using needle and thread and a simple running stitch.
