How do you make a Chrismas tree decoration out of a phone book?

I saved some phone books to make a Christmas tree out of it, but I can't figure out how to fold the pages, so it actually looks like a tree when I'm done.

Does anyone know?

    Well, I did this with a Reader's Digest when I was a kid. You fold the upper right corner of the page toward the center of the book (where it's bound). So, there's a 45 degree angle... like this: |\

    That doesn't look very good, but I thought it might help! Anyway, do this with every page (maybe you can do a few at a time with a phone book). It will automatically begin to make a circle. When they're all done, you connect the last page with the first with staples or paper clips. It will stand and look like a tree. /|\ Then, we spray painted ours with green paint. Then, maybe glue on decorations of some sort. Hope this helps.

    You start by folding all the pages of the book one by one down half way on a trangiler agle, when the is done you put it on a paper plate or a foam plate glue it to it. Then you can spray paint it and add anything you want for your taste. Stick a star on the top or angle whatever have fun with them. you can even make a santa claus the same way, only put a foam ball on the top and use it as face.

The are extra uncomplicated to look after longterm than timber, also. Plus, maximum have attractive flowering seasons. you want to guage your climate besides as sunlight publicity. Southern publicity might want to element out that a dought tolerant plant will be perfect. examine the book position for community alternatives. right here contained in the entire basin of Nevada, Lilac is usually a ideal determination, or also Spyrea (that are also hardy to even the hardest soils like clay). yet another element to save in ideas is to seem for non-deciduous species - which ability they are going to save foliage 12 months-round, so will provide consistent privateness.

    fold down every single page in the shape of half an arrow towards the center of the book.
