I am going to share with you the Origami Folded Christmas Tree.  One of my friends made these last year for me and I wanted to be able to make them on my own this year, so I worked hard at learning how to do these just for you!

1. Start with a 6" square piece of paper, with the color side down.  I am using white paper.

2. Fold in half along the diagonal and then unfold.


3.  Fold right and left sides to meet the crease.


4.  Flip over.

5.  Fold the top right and left side to meet the center crease.



6.  Fold the paper under at the top. Flip over.


7.  Fold the paper up and under the flaps.




8.  Flip over


Here are a few on my own tree!
