  • How to make a christmas tree. Christmas Paper Tree Diy - Step 1
    Step 1

    Take you paper sheets and cut them into rectangles of different sizes using you plain paper scissors or your craft scissors.
    For a small little tree like mine cut a generous number – let’s say 20 - of square papers measuring from 7cm x 7cm to 2cm x 2cm decreasing by 1 cm as you go.
    That way you’ll have
    20 pieces 7cm x 7cm
    20 pieces 6cm x 6cm
    20 pieces 5cm x 5cm
    20 pieces 4cm x 4cm
    20 pieces 3cm x 3cm
    20 pieces 2cm x 2cm
