These Christmas trees look so cute and didn't take too many supplies. I found an old book of Jack London stories in an antique store for a reasonable price.
The nice thing about these trees is you can make any size you want. I used a six-inch circle for my trees. Once you cut out your circle, cut it in half.
From the left side, fold your paper over 2 inches or so. This part isn't very exact. If you fold over less, the bottom "branches" will be larger and vice versa.
Now take the corner that was folded over and fold back so that the cut edge is even with the folded edge.
Turn over the paper.
Take the cut edge and fold it down to meet the folded edge.
It will look like this.
Turn it back over and you will see your Christmas tree.
To make the paper lay flat, use a glue stick to adhere the folds together.
And you're all done! If you like, you can take a small strip of paper and glue on for a tree trunk as seen below.
If you need more help in understanding the directions, watch the video I've put together for you.

These can be used to put on cards, put on display, or make a garland.
