3D Tree Tutorial

1. Print your file on cardstock. To create a 3 layered tree, you will need one base,
one middle piece, and one top. Gather necessary supplies.
(Recommended supplies: ruler, scissors, glue, bone folder with pointed tip)
Be sure to set your margins as close to 0 as possible.



2. Using the bone folder score from the top tip down to each of the 3 corners.
There should be 3 fold lines from the tip on each piece. Also, score the bottom triangle of the base.




3. Cut out all of your tree pieces.



4. Fold on the fold lines. Folds should all be folded in towards the white side of the paper.




5. For top and middle pieces, place glue on the flap and glue together to form a pyramid.



6. For the base piece, apply glue to both flaps.



7. Bring small triangle base up and glue in place.



8. Attach the side tab to the inside flap to form a pyramid.



9. Stack tree pieces, as desired. These trees can be made using 1, 2, or 3 layers per tree.
