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.
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!
These cards are really quite easy to make once you get into a rhythm and they look really effective.
You will need…
Different coloured paper for the trees
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.
Secure the cotton on the inside of the card with sellotape. You can cover this up with a sheet of paper if you wish.
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.
