Crafty: Christmas Tree Out of Reader’s Digest Magazines (PHOTOS)
Reader's Digest is the perfect size to make this simple, fun, magazine Christmas craft. Fold away!
Step 1: Get Your Magazine
The December 2012 issue, seen here with associate editor Alison Caporimo, is the perfect pick for this Christmas tree craft.
Step 3: Fold the Upper-Right Corner of the First Page
Just align it with the magazine’s binding—simple enough!
Step 4: Crease the First Fold
Fold the page along the magazine’s binding yet again, creating the shape you see here.
Step 6: Keep Going!
Repeat all of the folding steps page-by-page until you’re through with the entire magazine. To speed things up (and create a plumper tree), you can fold a few pages together.
Eventually, your magazine should look something like the animation below.
Step 7: Customize
Add tinsel, ornaments, the works! Make some for your friends! And have a happy holiday. (Glitter confetti optional.) Next, check out these adorable pets with Christmas spirit.
