Class Type: Email

Instructor: Lindy

Sign Up Deadline: 8/09/20162016

 

Class Description: In this e-mail class, you will learn to fold a flat, two-dimensional Christmas tree from one sheet of square paper. This Christmas tree is a classic origami model that is easy to fold.  It is not only instantly recognizable, but there are so many options for decorating it, thus it could be a great project to do with children or use it to decorate hand-made cards or gifts for Christmas. Use paper you have around your house to practice. You can then buy colored or patterned paper if you decide to make your tree for Christmas

 

Skill Level: Beginner

 

Supplies Needed:

Rectangular pieces of paper, like writing paper, construction paper or ordinary copy paper.

Optional:  embellishments like buttons, ribbon, crayons or markers

(Note: The first step in the project will be to make the rectangular paper into a square, so, if you know how to make a square paper from a rectangular piece of paper, feel free to create your square or squares before class.) For those who do not know how to create square paper, this will be covered in class.
