Step 1: You Will Need
- plywood (3mm)
- laser cutter (or a jigsaw)
- computer with a graphic program
- colored paper
Step 2: Design the Tree
The hole (blue in our sketch) of the pieces must have the same width as the thickness of the plywood.
If you will use other than 3mm thick wood you must correct it.
After that we put the pieces in a rectangular shape with the dimension of a postcard (A6 in germany).
Step 3: Cut the Plywood
Step 4: The Inner Envelope
We print out some stars and a text on a colored piece of paper and cut it a little bit smaller like the width of the postcard. (our text means: open here and put together)
Than you wrap it close around the woodcard and stick the ends together.
Step 5: Put It in the Envelope
And now, there is no hint outside that there is an wooden christmastree inside. The recipient of the card would be surprised :-)
And the postoffice would make no trouble, cause the weight is just 25gramm.
We hope you enjoy it.
greetings from germany
