1) Take a big fat glossy magazine. Open it as far as it goes and then force a little bit more to break the binding. You might need to do it twice or three times.
2) Starting with the cover, fold every page, bringing the top right corner to the crease. Press the fold neatly.
3) Next, fold each page again in the same direction, bringing the outside corner to the crease. At the end you should get the fan of long diamond-shape “neckties”.
4) Now carefully tack the bottom corners of each “necktie” inside, creating the flat tree bottom.
Each magazine page is turned into a long stiff triangle:
If you did the step one well, the magazine should fan into a neat cone. Now you can spray-paint it, cover with glitter or decorate in any way you want! I decided to leave it as it is. I sort of lean towards a casual, modern, Scandinavian-style décor this year.
