I didn’t have a tree topper and was inspired after seeing how easy it was to make a 3D paper star on Kim’s blog, Craftaphile. I added a stem and it seemed like I planned how well it fit on that topmost tree tip. The actual size is about 7.5″ wide x 9.5″ high.
I’m offering my die cut files free. I’d love to hear your comments like how it cut for you on your machine. The file formats are in SVG, DXF, and PDF (cutting by hand is also easy). They are all compressed into a ZIP file for you to download.
You’ll notice there’s a “front” and “back”, but really it’s just one has tabs and the other doesn’t. I pre-fold along all the lines (Craftaphile shows great photos) then use white glue and work with 2 tabs at a time, holding until the glue sets. After it’s assembled, the creases remember where they need to move and it just poofs out into 3D! Try it!
