Folded Tree Tutorial

Good day to you!
I have the tutorial today for the tree I showed you HERE.
I wanted to design a folded tree that wouldn't overhang at the sides and this is what I came up with...
To make this you need limited supplies of a cutter, bone folder, adhesive, a pencil and ruler and I used Stampin' Up's Scallop Circle die with the Big Shot, but you could use a circle approx 10.5cm wide.
So, to begin with you need to cut your scallop circle in half, the easy way to find the centre is to gently fold in half and pinch at the top and bottom to mark, you need to do this at the lower point between the scallops,
Next, measure along the straight edge, again from the bottom of the scallop, to 3.4cm
Fold at this point ensuring the straight edges meet.
Next fold the smaller, top section towards yourself so the cut edge is parallel to the first crease.
Unfold the top folded pieces and then fold the lower larger section so the bottom cut edge runs along side the first crease.
Re-fold the top and that's it!
For the best look add dimensionals at the bottom edge of the scallops and add a dab of glue to the top point when you fold to secure.
Adhere to your card for a pretty Christmas feel, the pot was punched with the small tag punch and the background is stamped with Serene Snowflakes in Pool Party
Thanks for visiting today and I hope you have enjoyed this mini tutorial, if you have a go at making this I would love to see it :-)
