Christmas Tree v2

This is a simpler Christmas tree model that I designed after creating Christmas Tree v1. This version has straightforward references and an easier collapsing sequence. It works very well with a variety of patterned origami papers, can be folded even from standard 6 inch/15 cm origami paper, has secure locks for the excess paper, and has no visual defects (e.g., split layers with wrong color visible underneath) from the front.

The design itself is straightforward - it's essentially the classic origami Christmas tree model with extra paper grafted for the star. The hard part was figuring out how to form the star without using too much paper.
