My sister sent me this card, not sure where she found it, but we both think it’s really cute! So if anyone knows who’s card this is, let me know so I can give credit. She wanted to know how to make the tree on the card. I looked at it and I remember making one like it a long time ago in a class. So I had to do a flashback and remember…..OMG! My memory these days isn’t what it used to be. hehehe. So ladies, here is my first tutorial in a long, long time. I’m sure there is another tut on the web somewhere, but here is my version. If you have any questions, leave a comment and I’ll get back to you.
*** Update*** I found the owner of this beautiful card…. Connie Babbert from Inkspired Treasures
The Christmas Tree Tutorial
Circle cutter, or a CD (that’s what I used)
double sided paper
brad, button, your choice of decoration for the top of your tree
So start with a circle.
Cut your circle in half.
** You might want to try this with a piece of scrap paper or I just used some white copy paper, so I know where my folds are. It will take a few times to get it just right. Once you do it and get it the way you want it, then there’s no stopping you in popping these out real quick. 🙂
Now the first fold is the tricky one. I’m right handed and so I started with the straight side on the left. bring the right side over about 2″ and you’re going to swing it up a bit. Look at the angle at the top. I put my finger at the bottom of where I want the fold and then you can play with where you want the fold to be.
Now you are going to fold back to the right, putting your fold over the straight side a bit. Look at my picture to get an idea.
Now, there is that piece that is hanging over on the left. You can either, fold it over to the back or I just cut it off, so there isn’t any bulk.
Add your brad, button or whatever you want to the top.
I added a start button to the top of mine.
How cute is that. I will post my finished card on my next post.
Sorry, I was so excited to get my tutorial up, I forgot to finish my card. dah! hahaha
Hope this is a good tutorial for you and display your finished cards down below with Mr. Linky.
