Paper Christmas tree


My kids go to to the Boys and Girls club after school. They love it there and sometimes they get to do some really cool craft work there. Sometime back, one of my kids brought home some really neat paper Pine trees that they made at bgc. I loved it. It not only looked great, but more so because how easy it was to make.

So I made my own version. Aren't these cute..:)

You'll need:
-------------
Paper
Glue

Steps:
-------
- Draw or trace the outline of the pine tree and cut it out. You will need two cutouts to make a tree.



- On one of the cutouts, from the bottom, to the middle of the tree, cut in the vertical middle line, just like the picture below.
For the other cutout, you need to cut from the top to the middle of the tree in a vertical line.



- Then slide the two cutouts along the cut just like the picture below.


Slide all the way in the cut, so the base of both the pieces are leveled.


The two cutout pieces seem to stand just fine for me. But to make the tree more stable, you can apply glue to the edges along the vertical line of the cut and stick the pieces together.

That was it! Wasn't that simple. Make a bunch and create a forest of these trees...:)
