Step 1: Makedo Christmas Tree Template!
Download this template file (pdf below) to start making your Makedo Christmas tree. :)
Step 2: Cut
Referencing from the downloaded template, measure and cut out the cardboard triangles. You should have a total of 16 triangle panels.
Step 3: Score
Where the perforated line is illustrated in the template, lightly score the cardboard with the tip end of the safe-saw.
Step 4: Punch
Use the Makedo safe-saw to punch holes in each triangle panel as shown in the template.
Step 5: Fold
Fold along the creased line. Repeat steps 1-3 for the remaining triangular panels.
Step 6: Build
Each module uses four identical triangle panels. Place the flap of one triangle over the edge of the second and align the holes. Screw in place using Makedo cardboard construction tools.
Step 7: Connect
Fold in the flaps underneath and screw the corners together to complete the triangular module. You should have 4 modules. 1x A, 2x B & 1x C.
Step 8: Stack
Position the triangles on top of one another in the following order (from bottom to top): B - C - B - A.
Step 9: Decorate
Draw on the cardboard, attach DIY Christmas ornaments that you've made yourself or find other interesting ways to personalise your Cardboard Christmas Tree.
Step 10: Complete
Your Makedo Christmas tree is complete! Find a cozy corner or a warm spot by the fire (not too close!) where your tree can bring festive cheer to your home.
