Hello! In this video I will show you how to make my new origami model a standing tree. This tree is a variation of the standing mushroom that I showed in the last video. To make you the origami tree, you need a square piece of paper with a different color on each side and we’ll start with the color on the bottom. First we’ll make an horizontal fold and we’ll make it so that the color part is much larger than the white part. There is no precise location for this fold. This is going to be green, the leaves of the tree. And this is going to be the stump. Mark the fold and then we are going to fold the two corners at this point like this. And mark the fold well, and fold the other corner then unfold and turn the model to the other side. And now I’m going to put one finger between those two layers so that I can rotate the fold like this and flatten it. So to do that you want to invert this fold here this diagonal fold and once it’s inverted, pay attention to this. You want to keep it aligned to the bottom. Once it’s aligned to the bottom you can just flatten the fold and mark it all the way. And do the same thing on the other side, so we separate the two layers and then we rotate the flap and invert the fold at the diagonal here, and pay attention to the bottom edge to keep it aligned. Once it’s aligned you can mark the fold. So we have some extra paper, we are going to put it inside so to do that fold it to the other side and fold this edge at about this edge. I’m going to fold it just a little bit before like this, and this is so that it doesn’t show And then fold again this fold like this, so when you turn the model to the other side you have something that looks like a big mushroom and we want to make a tree so we are going to round those corners. So put again the model to the other side and you can fold the corners like this and of course you can make the fold wherever you want. That tends to open so if you want you can put it inside, just open like this and push the fold inside and close back. And open and put the fold inside and then close back. So when you do that, it tends to open. One thing you can do is to make a smaller fold at the base. And this time just do it on this side and don’t put it inside. You can fold a bit this fold as well and if you want you can hold up at the top and then just repeat on the other side. Turn the model to the other side and your tree is complete. One thing I like about trees is that they should be able to stand, so if you do this you can make your tree stand, and to help it to stand and give it a nicer shape you can curve this part. So this will give interesting lights and shadows to your tree and it will help it to stand. I hope you like this tree. This origami tree is very simple and easy but I like the fact that you can make it stand up. If you fold this tree or any other of my origami models, please send me pictures so that I can show them in future videos. I’m still receiving many cool pictures of models from my book Origami for Halloween. It’s not Halloween anymore but the book is still selling. It can be a nice Christmas gift idea, especially if you like Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas. Please subscribe for more easy origami models and tutorials. Thank you very much and happy folding!
