Introduction: Paper Accordion Christmas Tree
Small dowels - I used Creatology's 3/16 x 11 7/8 inch ones
A flat base with a hole for the dowel - I used ArtMinds' 1.5 inch wooden wheels
Wood glue or superglue
Cricut or similar device - though you could cut it out by hand and hole-punch it
Scoring tool to make the paper easier to fold
Stickers, sequins, etc. to decorate!
Step 1: Cut Out Tree
Download this tree image and open it in Cricut Design Space, or whatever program you use. Scale it to 8 inches wide. Position a piece of cardstock to be cut, and cut it out.
Step 2: Putting It Together
Squeeze a little bit of glue around the dowel and stick it into the base. Score lines across the tree and fold it. You can put decorations onto the tree at this time as well. Once everything is dry, slide the tree onto the dowel.
