I used my Cricut Expression by Provo Craft and the new Cricut Designers Calendar cartridge to cut out a symmetrical Christmas tree. You can use any tree that you have. I cut six flat trees for each dimensional tree. My sizes were eight inches for the large tree, and four inches for the smaller ones.
Use any Cuttlebug Folder of your choice to put texture on your trees! I used the herringbone folder on one, and the OhMyCraft Mistletoe folder on the other. Any one you like will be great.
Next, use the Scor-It to score each tree down the center, and fold it in half.
Using your adhesive of choice, glue each section of the folded trees to the next, and the next, until you have them all stacked. Then glue the last one to the first one creating a round tree.
Insert a wooden skewer into the center of the tree, and use a little glue to secure it.
This aerial view will help you get an idea how the trees can be different. The big one was glued all the way out, creating six flat sides, one was glued only at the center, creating twelve sections, and one was done about half way out allowing the tips to be curled. Each tree has a unique personality.
I used a Styrofoam base, and stuck the skewers into it . The trees were decorated with some write-on snow and flower soft. I added two little deer to the scene from the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge.
A little additional snow sprinkled around finished the scene.
I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial, and will be making trees with your family for the holidays!
We will be seeing you soon with the 12 Days of Christmas and many other great ideas to keep you inspired.
