This video describes how to fold a modular origami Christmas Tree designed by Carlos Bocanegra.
Carlos kindly gave me permission to make this video accessible to you.


Thank you for sharing this. It's been too long since I've been able to fold and my love for modular pieces may bring me back to folding. I've been unable to fold for quite some time due to chronic back pain and caring for my wife who has cognitive memory decline. Can you give me a direction as to the star you topped this model with?

Thank you so much!

I folded this star: http://make-origami.... - I hope to make a tutorial on it to share with you before Christmas.

All the best to you, your wife and all your loved ones,

It’s perfect!! Thanks for sharing! Christmas blessing to you and yours!

Thank you for sharing this delightful tree. As always, your instructions are beautifully clear and easy to follow.

Thank you for making a such a wonderful, clear and well-paced video of Carlos Bocanegra’s Christmas tree. I have succeeded in making one level, and will now try to make the next level. Such a wonderful surprise in response to my enquiry on the origami mailing list.

Clear and very nicely done. Thank you.
