ARKi Christmas Tree

Materials:

1 x ARKi Box

Box Cutter

Pencil

Steel Ruler

Self Adhesive Velcro

Scissors

Pom Poms

Optional:

Cutting Mat

Hot Glue Gun

Instructions:

Step 1.

Cut off the large panels from one of your ARKi Boxes with a box cutter. Use a Pencil to trace one side of your tree shape on one of the panels.  We used a ruler for the straight lines but feel free to create any tree design you like!  Cut around the outlines taking care to keep the off cut in one piece.

Step 2.

Use the off cut from step 1 to trace around to create a symmetrical tree.  Cut out the other half of the tree shape, then use it as a template to cut the second piece.

Step 3.

Cut a slot in the bottom of one tree the width of the cardboard, and another slot in the top of the second tree.  They should meet in the middle when placed on top of each other.

Step 4.

Slot the two tree pieces together to make your tree stand up.

Step 5.

To decorate the tree, cut up self adhesive Velcro into squares, then attach one side to the tree faces randomly.

Step 6.

Attach the other sides of the Velcro to the pom poms, if you want your pom pom decorations to last a little longer you might like to use a dab of hot glue to help it adhere better.  Decorate your tree over and over with the pom poms by attaching the two Velcro sides together.
