You will need the following materials:

  • magazines with pages bound like a book;
  • spray paint;
  • liquid glitter;
  • foam stars.

So, let’s begin!

For a start remove the front and back covers of the magazine.

Fold the right lower corner of the page as shown on the photo (starting with the last page). Then fold the right upper corner along the central line of the magazine.

Fold the whole page again to form a neat triangle. If anything goes wrong, unfold the page again and correct the very first fold (of the right lower corner). You need to fold the corners correctly just once, and the rest of the pages will be folded boilerplate.

When you’re done with folding all the pages, your magazine will get a sustainable form, reminding the shape of a Christmas tree. Make your handmade masterpiece more festive with the help of spray paint and some liquid glitter. And a small foam star will bring a nice finishing touch to this piece of décor; you may fix it with a common toothpick.
