Magazine Christmas Trees

I saw this adorable craft in this month's Family Fun magazine.

I'm not adding any new directions to the above article... just showing you my how-to pics:

Lay the colorful side of the paper face-down   Fold the top right corner down until the top edge of the paper lines up with the left side edge.
For a shorter tree, cut the bottom rectangle off before making the next fold (i.e. where the red dashed line is above).  Fold the top right edge down to line up with the left side edge.
Fold up bottom point until you have a flat base.

One sheet down... keep repeating until you have a full tree :).  The right angle of this triangle is the inside bottom of the tree. Tape or glue the front and back folds of each sheet to the adjoining sheets.  When all "branches" were taped together, I hot-glued the top points together and then added a small ornament as a tree topper.
The finished product...
