Christmas inspiration for creation from paper.
- Recycling of old paper, is utilizing old discarded books or magazines
- a piece of wire (star)
We will use old books or magazines to compose these Christmas trees. For a book we just need to fold about 100 pages, for a magazine we usually need more. It depends on the quality and thickness of the paper.
We cut out the inner sheets from a firm back and we can start to folding.
Fold each sheet twice and smooth the edges carefully.
Insert the protruding corner inwards and fold it back to fit the edge of the page. In this way we gradually fold the individual sheets.
Finally, close the tree by partially gluing the inside of the first and last leaves. If we have more pages, this gluing is not even needed, the sheets are squeezed by the pressure of the folded pages.
The trees can be decorated with stars made of wires.
