  1. Measure and cut 2 card stock triangles for each tree; ours are 8 by 12 inches (base by height), 11 by 17 inches, and 9 1/2 by 12 1/2 inches. Measure and mark base on card stock. Find midpoint; measure from midpoint to height.

  2. Using ruler as a guide, run bone folder along vertical center line to crease each triangle; fold in half.
