Step 1: Step 1: Fold Your Note in Half
Step 2: Step 2: Folder the Corners in Towards Each Other As Shown
Make sure you do this for both sides of the folds.
The new notes are a little resilient to folding sometimes. Put them under something heavy for a short while and they'll stick down better.
Step 3: Step3: Fold the Two Newly Created Points Towards Each Other.
Make sure you're folding them into themselves as such.
Step 4: Step 4: Folder the Corners Sticking Out Behind the Triangle and Tuck Away From View.
This part is normally very resistant to folding over so might need some time under a heavy object (An Argos catalog/ Yellow Pages)
Step 5: Step 5: You Should End Up With It Looking Like This
Repeating three times or however many tiers you want on your tree.
Step 6: Step 6: Add a Stump
The stump is created by folding a note into a small rectangle.
You can put this in a card or do whatever you feel is best. As the triangles aren't attached I opted stacking them on top of each other and putting it on top of a Christmas cake. I just made a small cut in the icing with a knife and slotted the base into the gap.
