  • 1.

    Use two sheets each of green and blue construction paper. Use Crayola® Scissors to cut the sheets into squares. Fold the sheets in half, and cut the squares in half by cutting along the folds. Alternate the sheets (green, blue, green, blue) in a pile, and fold them in half, so they are divided into two equal sections like the pages of a small book. Tie a festive ribbon around the bundle at the fold. Make a knot at the top, and tie a bow in it.

  • 2.

    Hold the book open in front of you, as if you were reading it. On the right page, fold down the outer-top corner so the top edge of the paper meets the book's middle fold. Your page is now a large triangle. Fold up the bottom right corner along the outer edge of the page so your tree will look like it has space under its bottom branches. Glue this final fold in place with Crayola School Glue. Repeat this step for each page of your tree.

  • 3.

    Use Crayola Markers to draw Christmas ornaments on all of the tree limbs.

  • 4.

    Make one tiny snip in each page, starting at the top of the tree on the first page. Place each snip slightly lower the than one before, until you have come all the way around the tree in a spiral, like a garland around the tree. Your last snip will be low

  • 5.

    Place a small amount of glue on the end of festive holiday ribbon or cord, and glue it inside the top of the tree. Fit the cord into the notches you just made, allowing a small amount of cord between each page. This will help to evenly space your tree limbs. At the end notch, knot the cord, and glue it.

  • 6.

    Form Christmas ornaments with Crayola Model Magic. Press and glue them onto the tops of the notches filled with cord. Dry.

  • 7.

    Color the ornaments with Crayola Glitter Glue for a sparkling holiday effect. Dry.
