Cut out trees


Fold in half from top to bottom, making sure to press the crease nice and flat on each piece!

Fold pieces in half


Open up each folded piece, and apply glue in two thin lines from the center crease toward the outer edge, then re-fold the piece in half to adhere.

Glue and Fold


Glue the pieces together in a stack with lines of glue at the center of each piece. Clamp pieces together to make the stack even.

Stack and Glue


Use a brush to apply E6000 adhesive to the side of the tree where the folded edges come together. Set everything aside to try completely.

Finish Binding


Unfold the tree into a circular shape and secure with a paper clip.
