Christmas Tree (Design by Vladimir Serov)

Christmas Tree (Design by Vladimir Serov)

This is my first try at 3D origami and I must say, it really is time consuming 😛 The original design had about 4 layers of leaves out of which I managed to make 3 layers and then propped the top with a leafy tree topper just to complete the look! 😀

This is a design I came across on the net while browsing for Christmas Origami designs for this season. I think this is the prettiest Origami Christmas tree out there so far.

What paper to use:

You can buy leaf green A4 sized paper at Michaels or any other craft shop you have nearby. Each sheet of A4 sized paper yields around 32 small rectangles which are then folded into units to connect and make a shape. each of the rectangles will measure around 3 inches by 2 inches approx when you cut them out from the A4 sized paper and the triangular units will measure approx 3/4 of an Inch in size.

How to fold the units:

This is my very first model in 3D origami and I found this Instructional video on 3D origami for Beginners very useful. Jewellia explains how to fold the triangular units very nicely and even provides tips in folding.

How to fold the Christmas Tree:

I followed the diagram I found of Vladimir Serov’s Christmas tree and followed it to the mark up until I had to improvise for my laziness and avoid folding the bottom layer of leaves but still make the tree look like a Christmas tree 😀

The number of units and how to connect them are clearly shown in the diagram. I am sure you will find it clear to follow… Vladimir Serov has even explained the diagram to fold the 3D origami star which you can try. The numbers shown for each of the rows in the diagram depict the number of units used to fold that section or row. I found it easy to connect ‘section’ wise rather than following the rows of units.

You can even fold an Angel or a Star as your tree topper!
