Christmas Tree v2

DesignedJan 2021
Crease PatternYes

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

The design 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.
