Here's a quick 'tutorial' on how to make the trees - Emily Davis very kindly flattered me by asking how these little trees were made - I was glowing after I read her request at the PTI website!! (hopefully if you click on the image it will get bigger)
To start with take your four largest square scallopped nestability dies and cut a green square of paper or card for each - then cut an extra one for the biggest die. - Paper and light card are better - heavy card can be harder to manipulate in this project.
Steps 1 and 2 Refer to the pictures to see where I scored each square - do them all in the same positions - first from corner to corner then I used the scallops as a guide to do two more scores on either side of the diagonals.
Steps 3 and 4 Then I made the folds, pinching the corners so's they folded inwards. After that I squashed the corners from front to back see pic 4.
Steps 5 and 6 I secured them with really strong double sided tape for the paper trees (I used eyelets on the card trees aswell).
Steps 7 and 8 I repeated this process on all of the squares and then attached little sticky pads to each tip of the tree sections and then stacked them all together.
If you are going to use eyelets stop at step 4 and punch holes as per the photo below - add the eyelets and proceed to step 6.
For some of my trees I didn't use tape or eyelets but left them open to make little shaggy trees - I think I might prefer them like this.
