Tutorial - A Simple Christmas Tree Card

Christmas is coming sooner than you think! A few readers requested for a simple card-making tutorial, so I've decided to write a tutorial on a simple Christmas tree card. The idea is taken from another website, though.

I hope the instructions are easy to follow. :) This card will take about 5 to 10 minutes to make for beginners. For experts, probably 2 minutes or less! :) Enjoy!

You will need:
A pre-folded blank card (folds into a 5x7 inch card)

A pattern paper
A silver star brad
Embellishment (I used snowflake glitter stickers)

Double-sided tape
Glue stick
Tools like scissors, cutter, crafting mat, ruler, pencil




Step 1:

If you're using a plain card, measure and cut it into 10x7 inch.

Then, fold the card into half.






Step 2:

Cut the pattern paper into a triangle, with a 5-inch base (tapak) and 7-inch height (tinggi).

You might want to use your pencil and ruler to measure first, just to be sure.





Step 3:

Use your cutter, cut a small insertion (3mm) at the top of the triangle.








Step 4:

Push the brad's legs/prongs into the insertion. This will be the star at the top of the Christmas tree.







Step 5:

Split the 2 prongs open to secure the brad.









Step 6:

Stick the triangle paper onto your blank card.

You might want to use double-sided tape for the top part, where the brad is so that it sticks securely onto the blank card.





Step 7:

Stick your embellishments onto the white blank card as its background.

You can use glitter stickers, or stamp images of snowflakes too.





And you're done! Here's the end result! Hope this tutorial is beneficial for you. I had fun during the whole process. :) Let me know if you like it!
