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 2: Remove the Cover
Start off by removing the cover. We suggest framing it afterwards, or putting it on your fridge. (You’ll also want to tear off the back cover.)
Step 4: Crease the First Fold
Fold the page along the magazine’s binding yet again, creating the shape you see here.
Step 5: Turn the Page and Fix the Flap
After step 4, you’ll notice that there’s a bit of the folded page hanging below the magazine. Turn the page and fold that part up so it’s aligned with the rest of the pages.
