- R15294 Terrific Tree Paper
- Tape or glue
Cut Terrific Tree Paper into ½” x 11” strips.
Glue two strips together at the corner.
Glue two more strips on top the first strips but directly underneath.
Fold each strip, in order from left to right, across the others.
Keep folding until you near the end of the strips.
Glue the ends together and trim the excess to form the final angle.
Extra tip: Alternate the pattern by making the first two strips the grain side of the wood and the second two strips the bark side.
