  2. Make the Pieces of the Tree

    Flip the paper back over to the other side. Push the right and left sides into the middle, collapsing the top section down. You now have a water bomb base.

    Make two more of these.

    Rotate the paper and flip it over to the other side. Push in the right and left corners to the middle. This is an origami square base.

  5. Glue the Tree Together

    Now it's time to stick the tree together with a bit of glue. Glue the top of one of the tree sections.

    Get another tree section and slot it on top, gluing it at the same time. You can adjust the height of the tree by pushing it on further. Do the same with the tree trunk.

  6. Attach the Tree to a Card

    Now you can stick the tree onto a piece of card that is folded in half.

    Leave the tree as it is or make it more three dimensional by folding the right and left sections in the opposite directions.

    You can also decorate the tree by drawing baubles and tinsel with pens or sticking other decorations on top!
