I was sending some of these origami Christmas trees out to some customers and thought how fun it would be to write a blog post about how I made them.  Sometimes, when learning different origami patterns, I notice how easy it is to make one mistake in a fold, and mess the whole thing up.  I’ve included some other tutorials in this blog post because I think learning from multiple sources is the best way to absorb information.

To start out, you are going to need a “square base”.  The square base is one of the most common base folds when doing origami.  A paper crane starts with a square base, to give you a point of reference.

I got this tutorial from mylifeboxjewelry.com:

Pretty fun, right?!  I am on the look out now for a HUGE piece of paper.  LOL, I want to make a huge one of these.  How fun would a two foot tall tree be?

Happy holidays fellow crafters!
