3D Christmas Tree Card

The festive fir is a Christmas classic, and this card gives the tradition a contemporary twist while retaining its meaning. It makes for some tricky-looking folding, but it’s really much simpler than it looks! We decided to branch out from the usual red and green colours and explore a more subtle palette, but you can use whatever colours you like. Once you’ve made the card, why not apply the same technique to make a set of decorations?

Craft essentials
Paper collection, Hobbycraft Snow Cool
Ink pad, black
Stamp, Christmas sentiment
Gel pen, white

1. Cut out five squares from patterned paper in the following sizes: 4cm, 5cm, 6.5cm, 7.5cm and 9cm. Fold each square in half diagonally to create a triangle, making sure the right side is facing you. Open the triangle and fold diagonally in the other direction, right side facing you.

2. Straighten out the triangle and, with wrong sides facing, bend the paper in half horizontally. Open up and push in the horizontal fold to form a 3D triangle shape. Take the top layer on the right
side of the triangle and fold towards the centre. Repeat this process with the left side.

3. Manipulate the remaining squares into 3D triangles, assemble and glue. Cover a blank with aqua card, then add a wavy section of white at the bottom. Add some snowflakes with a gel
pen and stamp a sentiment at the bottom. Finish by adding a star.
