The Christmas season has already started, and I decided that it was about time I got into the Christmas spirit, so what better way than to make a Christmas tree but I didn't want a massive one as I have no place to put it. So it had to be small so it would be desk sized and then I decided to combine my favorite hobby origami. So to recap it would be a desk sized, origami Christmas tree, but i didn't want to use 5 different pieces of paper as it would be to wasteful and simply too difficult.

So I took 10 minutes and came up with a simple template dividing an A4 sheet of paper into 5 squares and 1 rectangle for the branches and trunk and coloured them into the corresponding colours, so that anyone with a printer can print out the template in colour or colour it in and fold it into Christmas tree for their desk or apartment. Perfect for any room.
The great thing about the A4 page is that it can be scaled up to A1 meaning you could in theory make a massive Christmas tree based on the template.

Step 1: Print and cut

Firstly print off the template (save the image then print it off).
Then cut it out very carefully.
