Old Magazines turned into Christmas Trees using simple Origami

Don't know what to do with your old magazines? This is a simple, quick project (about an hour total), to turn a magazine into a Christmas Tree. See photos for the tutorial. This would be a great project for the kids because it's so easy!

    Oh boy did this bring back memories for me. We used to make this using Reader's Digest magazines until they got so thin it fill out as well. We didn't do as many folds, but with your triple fold it just might work again. Thanks Leslie! I'm going to try this tomorrow. Right now, I'm going to bed.

    This is giving me a blast-from-the-past moment as well.

    Here come those old memories again. Given I've not culled my magazines in a while and they are stacking up on me, I may just have to try this one. Back to 4th Grade...

    I recall making an angel like this many moons ago.
