Make beautiful #holiday trees out of magazines in 3 simple steps! | Tutorial at I Gotta Create!



Deck your Halls
with a forest of trees you make yourself
out of something you already have 
plenty of lying around the house:
magazines!

This is a fun project to do with the family,
with friends at a holiday craft party,
or simply as you sit sipping 
eggnog or hot chocolate
and watching holiday movies.

These magazine trees are easy to make
and I'm offering you beautiful,
full-color, fully illustrated instructions.

Here's 

How to Make Magazine Trees:

Note:  It's useful to have a bone folder to make crisp folds for this project

Step 1: fold the top outer corner of the magazine page down to the spine of the magazine, aligning the top edge of the magazine page to the spine (creating a triangle), and crease fold with your bone folder.

Step 2:  fold again to make a narrower triangle by bringing the diagonal edge of your page in alignment with the magazine spine. Crease with your bone folder.

Step 3: flip your page over and grab that little triangle tail and bring it up flush with the bottom of the magazine page. Crease and tuck it into the "pocket" created by your double-folded triangle.

Repeat for each page of the magazine!

Tip for going faster: 
Do Step 1 for every page in the magazine, then go through and do Step 2 for each page in the magazine, then finish up with Step 3. This makes it super easy to do while you're watching a movie!
