Cut Designer Series Paper (Wintergreen) into 4 squares: 1.5”, 2”, 2.5” and 3”
Fold the largest square to form a triangle with the front side of your paper showing.
Unfold and repeat in the other direction to form an “x” on the paper.
Unfold the triangle and fold the top edge to the bottom edge to form a rectangle with the back side of the paper showing.
Unfold back to the square.
Holding the square so that the last fold is horizontal, push in on both sides on the last fold line.
This should form a folded triangle with that last horizontal fold meeting inside right in the middle.
Fold the two front corners down so they meet in the center.
Repeat for all 4 size squares of the tree and assemble as shown at the top.
