My kids' school project theme just switched to Christmas. They were required to make a DIY greeting card. This will be entered in a class contest and here's our entry.


  • 1 piece green colored paper
  • 2 small pieces brown colored paper
  • 1/2 crosswise white cardboard paper
  • mini star accessories
  • scissors
  • glue
  • pen


  1. Fold white paper into half. Set aside.
  2. Fold green paper like an accordion.
  3. Cut into half.
  4. Cut one half into half again.
  5. Cut small halves into different sizes.
  6. Fold all sizes in half. It will then create a set like this.
  7. Do the same with the brown paper, but do not cut. Just fold them after making an accordion.
  8. Apply glue to the inner edges and stick together.
  9. Apply glue on outer edges and glue it to the center fold of your card.
  10. Start from the biggest and work toward the smallest, from the bottom to top.
  11. Glue the brown ones below the biggest layer.
  12. Decorate top of the tree with stars.
  13. Surround your tree with tiny sparkling stars.
  14. Write your greetings!
