Christmas Project - A Jongi Jeopgi Tree

Gather Around the Tree

We bring the evergreen tree into the home at Christmas to add a little of the natural world inside when it is too cold to be outside. The decorations are simply a bonus!

Jongi Jeopgi Christmas Trees

We created a great Christmas project for your children - a jongi jeopgi tree! Create a mini forest on your mantel or under your real tree.

You can use square folding paper if you already have it or print out the templates we’ve created for you. There’s one for Joohee, Taemin, Minji, and Soojin, along with two pattern styles. Just print, cut, and fold.
