Christmas tree instructions

November 23, 2012

Hello there

Today I will be showing you how to make the Christmas tree.  As you can see it is very easy to do.  I have used the Enchanted range as the colours are great for Christmas.

First cut a 5 inch half circle.  I have used the Creative Memories Custom Cutting large circle and the red cutter to create the shape.

Cutting the half circle.
All cut out and ready to fold.


















I then used my rotary trimmer to score a line about 1 1/4 inches from the edge of the paper.

The first fold in toward the middle.










I then folded the paper along that line.

The second fold










Fold the corner of the paper up to align with the folded edge.

The third fold











Then fold the card back along the shorter edge towards the back  and in this photo you can just see the fold that I have made. Turn over the paper and there you have the finished tree to embellish as you would like.  To finish off I sponged the edge of the tree with a brown ink pad and then used the Enchanted epoxy stickers to add a little bling.  You can also cut a piece of brown card or paper to make the base of the tree.

Here is the finished tree










I hope you have fun with this.  This is a great project for children to do to make their own cards and I will be doing this at my local library on Christmas Eve for their holiday programme.

Cheers Trisha
