3D Paper Trees

12 Dec

Are you ready for a fun Christmas centerpiece or mantel decoration? I’ve got a freebie for you today that you’ll want to grab now because this deal ends 12/24 (after that, you can still purchase the template for 99 cents). These 3D Paper Trees are easy to make and add a great dimensional look to your table top. These free printables come in 3 choices of style- but all are completely customizable if you have the My Memories Suite software. You don’t have to be a My Memories Suite owner to score on this deal, but you do have to have one of their accounts (free!) to download it. Please note: YOU DO NOT NEED A FANCY CRAFT CUTTER (i.e. silhouette or cricut) all you need is an X-acto knife or razer blade.

 3D Tree Tutorial

1. Print your file on cardstock. To create a 3 layered tree, you will need one base,
one middle piece, and one top. Gather necessary supplies.
(Recommended supplies: ruler, scissors, glue) 
Be sure to set your margins as close to 0 as possible.

 

 

2. Score from the top tip down to each of the 3 corners.
There should be 3 fold lines from the tip on each piece. Also, score the bottom triangle of the base.

 

 

3. Cut out all of your tree pieces.

 

 

4. Fold on the fold lines. Folds should all be folded in towards the white side of the paper.

 

 

5. For top and middle pieces, place glue on the flap and glue together to form a pyramid. 

 

 

6. For the base piece, apply glue to both flaps.

 

 

7. Bring small triangle base up and glue in place. 

 

 

8. Attach the side tab to the inside flap to form a pyramid. 

 

 

9. Stack tree pieces, as desired. These trees can be made using 1, 2, or 3 layers per tree.

Here’s one of my favorite parts about the My Memories freebies- if you are into digital scrapbooking, you can download these freebies and use the paper backgrounds without having to do the craft shown! The package comes with the template OR just the papers and elements!
