To make these Christmas tree bookmarks, you’ll need:

How to make a Christmas tree bookmark
To get started, lay down a piece of origami craft paper diagonally so that the corners are pointed at the sides as shown below.
Fold the paper in half from top to bottom to create a triangular shape. Then, grab the bottom corner and fold it up to the crease.
Grab the right and left corners of the paper and fold it down to the bottom corner.
Tuck both corners upwards under the pocket fold to finish off the base of your bookmark.
Now it’s time to put together your tree! Cut out the shape for the Christmas tree and the trunk using the downloadable template.
Glue the tree onto the trunk and then punch out colored circles with a hole punch from the colored craft papers. Glue them on the tree to serve as the ornaments.
Add some glitter of your choice to the colored circles. Finish it off by gluing the tree onto the base of the bookmark. You’re finished!
We hope you have fun making this Christmas tree bookmark! It is one of our favorite bookmark crafts and I know you are going to love this one.
