I didn't have a tree topper and was inspired after seeing how easy it was to make a 3D paper star on Kim's blog, Craftaphile. I added a stem and it seemed like I planned how well it fit on that topmost tree tip. The actual size is about 7.5" wide x 9.5" high.
If you have a digital die cutter, visit my blog to download the SVG and DXF files.
You'll notice there's a "front" and "back", but really it's just one has tabs and the other doesn't. I pre-fold along all the lines then use white glue and work with 2 tabs at a time, holding until the glue sets. After it's assembled, the creases remember where they need to move and it just poofs out into 3D! Try it! The best part is that it folds flat for easy storage.
I'm a graphic designer by day and a paper enthusiast by night. I enjoy giving quilling and die cutting a new twist.
