I've seen a lot of requests lately for easy Christmas tree patterns. One of my favorites is the origami trees pictured on page 161 in the Stampin' Up cataloque. Here's a tutorial for an Origami Tree
Below are a couple more easy trees made with the pop up Tree die. For the first tree I used just the 2 largest pieces and tied on some elastic cord after stringing it with 1/2" circles. The other tree is made using the large tree shape from the die as a pattern. Trace 4 trees, fold them in half and glue them together.
