Christmas Tree v1

There are many flat and/or tiered origami Christmas tree models, so I focused on a few goals when designing my own version. 1) One uncut square. 2) Color-changed star and trunk. 3) Well-defined star shape. 4) Each tier is both wider and taller than the tier above it.

I managed to achieve those goals with this model. It is also possible to add extra tiers with the same increase in proportions to the tree. Unfortunately, I found that the precise tiers do make this model tedious to fold. I recommend Christmas Tree v2 for a simpler folding experience.

This model can be made to stand by itself by opening up the model and folding the tree trunk inside.
