Christmas tree cards:Part 2 ~From my craft’s corner

Hey people, I am back with second day of Christmas craft. In my first part, I made two very easy peasy Christmas card ideas and today, I am going to make another very pretty Christmas tree card which can be used as a wall decor or as a wishing card for your loved ones.

I love vibrant colours and I just love Christmas but that really doesn’t mean Christmas has to be everything red, green and white or it has to be? πŸ˜€ Well it completely depends on one’s personal perception of seeing things. Christmas tree is green, snow is white and Santa’s dress of course red πŸŽ…. Now that makes my first card. A perfect to go Christmas card which will bring back your winter mood πŸ™‚ I couldn’t stop myself from adopting the theme ☺️

Let’s start making one now πŸ‘‡

What we need :

  1. Origami square papers
  2. Card paper
  3. Ruler and pencil
  4. Glue stick
  5. Scissor βœ‚
  6. Some decor (stars, glitter tape, etc)

Take a square origami paper (preferably thin paper, it will be easier to make and the tree looks much prettier and lively)

My paper is one side white and one side colored. Both sides colored paper will do equally good.

Now rotate the paper and fold diagonally corner to corner like this πŸ‘‡

Now make a straight line parallel to the folded side leaving a little space.

Again rotate the paper and make straight lines starting from one end as shown keeping 1cm distance.

Now it’s time to bring your scissors. Simply cut along the vertical line up to the line we marked at first.

You will get this when you are done cutting

After you finish, unfold the paper.

Tadaa, you will get this πŸ‘‡

Reverse the paper to work in the back (white side) to keep the green as the front. Now it’s time for the glue stick. Take one strip at one time and stick to the bottom as shown carefully. You don’t want to tear a part.

Now take a strip from another side and stick it on it like this πŸ‘‡

Now continue doing the process till you reach the top. Your beautiful tree is done

Just paste a star on the top and use it as decor for your wall showcases or any wooden frames. Isn’t it just adorable already?

Now lets get into the card making.

Take a red card paper, fold into half and paste the tree on it carefully in the middle leaving some portion in the bottom.

Now it’s time for adding the sentiment. Make your own if you wish like I did here πŸ™‚ Paste the sentiment on the bottom.

Make a star using two equal yellow triangle pasting one on another like I did in my last post and paste it on top obviously.

Let’s not be boring. Decorations are a must ☺️

And our first card is ready. Fill the inner part with you blessings and feelings and make the recipient happy 😊I am sure anyone would love such a lovely greeting card.

I have made a similar tree in bright yellow color and used on a blue card with golden decorations. Few stars and a golden tape with a red star.

As I said, Christmas doesn’t have to be g-re-w ( green, red, white)

This is for those who love shine and glitter.

Saint and sinner.

Yay, my family is growing πŸ™‚

Check out my last and first post on Christmas card here if you haven’t already ☺️

Till the next time. Keep showering love and blessings. Happy winter ❄

Much love,

Riya
