Now there's a bar!

This small forest of paper and small trees will bring you much admiration when giving away. The effort is worth it!

You need this:

  • Blue construction paper
  • Craft paper in pink
  • 5-euro bills
  • Cover of a cardboard box
  • Styrofoam
  • Acrylic paint in brown and gold
  • 10 shashlik skewers
  • Fairy lights (depot, 8.99 €)
  • Artificial snow (depot, 3, 99 €)
  • cutter
  • brush
  • computer
  • printer
  • printer paper
  • craft wire
  • Hot glue gun

And that's how easy it is:

1. Fold the ticket on the longitudinal axis and on the transverse axis in half and unfold again

2. Place the bill horizontally in front of you, fold the right side on the middle axis to the left half.

3. Fold the upper half back to the right for two-thirds so that the bill has three layers at a small point.

Place the ticket vertically in front of you, with the shorter side down.

5. Fold the double layer of the left and right inward to create small triangles. The horizontal of the triangle should lie on the horizontal, rear edge of the bill.

6. Pull the lower left corner inwards so that the triangle opens and the tree trunk is formed. Same procedure on the right side.

7. Fold the upper corners to the middle axis.

8. Fold the outer diagonals again to the central axis.

9. Turn the tree over.

10. Cut the construction paper approx. 25 times to 5 Euro size (13.3 x 7.2 cm).

11. Fold the clay papers all to trees.

12. Cut the styrofoam to the size of the lid, prime with acrylic paint, leave to dry and glue into the lid.

13. Put shish kebab skewers of approx. 13 cm length evenly into the styrofoam at a distance of 5 cm from the edge.

14. Slightly offset the slots for the trees with the cutter into the styrofoam. Leave a path in the middle. Tuck trees into the slots in polystyrene.

15. Wrap the fairy lights around the shish kebab skewers.

16. Glue the gold garland around the edge of the box using hot glue.

17. Print out the word "Christmas trees" and fasten them in the middle of the center as a small sign with craft wire on the light chain.

18. Sprinkle artificial snow over the trees.
