Wow, two posts in one day! :) I've been asked by several people on how I made my mini folded trees. You can see my post on them here. Because of this, I decided to make a quick tutorial to help you make them too!
Chose your DSP of choice and punch either 2-1/2" circles & cut them in half (at 1-1/4"), or use your punch to only punch 1/2 circles.
Create a template on your grid paper. I created this one after many attempted folds. :) Draw your markers exactly where I have mine on the grid.
Place your 1/2" circle on your template & fold diagonally using your markers. Your fold doesn't have to line up exact, but close.
Your fold should now look like this.
Now, using the top point as a guideline, fold your next tree layer. I
liked having a tad overhang for my trees... I thought it made them look
Repeat Step 5 to make your last tree layer. Trim the top overhang if you're left with too much.
I glued my tree layers down with Tombow, but this is a personal choice. I didn't want the trees to be too bulky... but you can leave them unglued too if you want.
To finish things off, I cut strips of card stock in coordinating colours for the trunks and used the star punch from the Merry Minis Punch Pack to punch stars from Glimmer Paper. I wanted that bit of shine, but card stock or DSP could work just as well.
I hope this Tutorial has helped you... I would love some feedback since this is my first one. :) Enjoy making these mini trees. BE AWARE, they can be addictive to make!
Until next time, stay crafty!
