DIY Christmas Cards

DIY Holiday Cards

So easy, so beautiful, and perfect for giving! 

Learn how to make these pop-up Christmas tree cards.  They are very easy and quick to make!

You will need a Cricut machine with the Winter Frolic cartridge, 5 different cardboard papers, blank cards, a sewing machine, & silver thread.

First, cut out all of your trees in various sizes, using the same color for each size.  In mine, I used   4 ¼ in. khaki green, 4 in. plaid, 3 ¾ in. sparkling green, 3 ½ in. red, and 2 ½ in. sparkling dark green.

Then you stack your trees.  I used a clip to make sure they stayed together.

Next sew them with a basic stitch straight down the middle using your silver thread. I used a very short backstitch and a knot at the end.

Cut off the ends and ‘fluff’ up the tree. 
Send them to your friends and family for a great homemade Christmas card!

Do you make your own holiday cards?  Feel free to share!
