The delicate bright green floral sari prints are all the decorating these simple trees need.
They may be folded from a square of normal paper or light cardboard, but
here they are made from a fine layer of cotton fabric bonded onto good quality book print paper (those annual share report books have their uses!!)
I love the way the typography gently emerges through the botanical pattern.
How to fold:
|Fold a preliminary base. Squash fold each flap.|
|Crease fold each point up|
|Reverse fold the points and tuck under. Once again, squash fold each flap.|
|Crease fold each flap up. Reverse fold and tuck under.|
|Join each inside point with a thread. Pull in and tie to secure the tree shape.|
If you would like to try the fabric option, here's how it's done using fusible applique paper
|Cut a squares of book paper . Cut a square of fusible bonding paper, iron it onto the fabric and cut the square out.|
|Flatten the paper square, peel the backing paper off the fabric square, and iron the fabric onto the paper square.|
