Tutorial :: Felt tree Christmas cards

I first made these cards about five years ago, but wanted a quick handmade card so dug out my box of felt and got designing.

Materials:

  • Pencil, ruler, paper, scissors - for the template
  • Blank card, felt, double sided sticky tape - for the card

The first step was to produce a template.


I used this to cut out the felt shapes, I did this by holding tight rather than drawing round the template, it is often easier to to this on smaller felt items.



I laid out the trees on the card in my chosen design making sure they were cented and evenly spaced. The I placed double sided sticky tape and stuck down my trees one by one.


A very simple and effective design for a Christmas card ...
