I love making handmade gifts for Christmas. I think there is just something so special about a gift that you have taken the time to make for someone. Even if you don't have time to make gifts you can always spend a little bit of time making handmade cards for a few special people. Read on to find out how to make 3D Christmas Tree cards - they are easy to make and really effective.
I find crafting quite relaxing so there is the added benefit of taking that little time out during the busy festive period. A couple of hours spent making cards is a welcome break from the stress of shopping and working! I always love receiving something handmade, it is extra special to me because of the time that someone took making it for me, that is why these 3D Christmas Tree cards will be such a delight to whoever you send them to.
You will need...
- Card base
- Different coloured paper for the trees
- Thick needle
- Star sequins
Cut out triangle shapes from the different coloured card.
Fold them in half and secure them to the card base with the cotton and thread. One or two stitches will do, or if you are good at sewing you can do a line of small, neat stitches.
Secure the cotton on the inside of the card with sellotape. You can cover this up with a sheet of paper if you wish so it is hidden when the card is opened.
Repeat until you are happy with the look of the trees. Stick the sequin stars on the top of the trees with glue and leave to dry.
I love the look of these cards and can't wait to take time out of my busy December to make these and send them to some special people.
