Christmas tree instructions

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

    • Thank you for your kind feedback. Please feel free to come back anytime as I plan to keep updating with new ideas and instructions.

  1. Hello, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and
    i was just curious if you get a lot of spam feedback?

    If so how do you protect against it, any plugin
    or anything you can suggest? I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any help is very much appreciated.

    • Hi there
      I have only just started up this blog and I have not had too many problems with spam so far. There is a spam filter with wordpress that is filtering out the spam. However, it still pays to check to make sure that I don’t miss legitimate comments. Have you tried looking up in the help section? I hope this helps?
      Many thanks for visiting my site.

  2. I love your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you design this website
    yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you?
    Plz reply as I’m looking to create my own blog and would like to find out where u got this from. thanks a lot

    • Thank you for your kind comments. For my blog I have used WordPress and have gradually built it up and added posts. I have used a standard theme – Bouquet as my favourite colour is pink. This is the basic WordPress blog and it is free. If you would like to customize further then you can pay for this extra. It has been a lot of trial and error and I am still working on it. There are lots of tutorials to help get started as well. I hope this helps you and let me know how you are going and I can follow your blog once you get going. Kind Regards.
      Patricia.

  3. Howdy are using WordPress for your blog platform? I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying
    to get started and create my own. Do you require any coding expertise to make your own blog?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    • Hi there.
      I have not required any special expertised to create this blog. It has been a little trial and error to get the results that I want and I have just played around with the different features on the ‘dashboard’. There are lots of tutorials with WordPress to help you get started.
      Good luck with your own blog and let me know how you have got on.

    • Hello – My blog is free through wordpress.com and you can pay extra to get a premium product, but I am happy with what I have got. There are lots of tutorials online to help with developing your blog or website.
      Hope this helps.

  12. I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Anyway keep up the nice quality writing, it is rare to see a nice blog like this one these days.

    • Thank you for your positive feedback. The theme that I am using is Bouquet from WordPresss (which is free) and I created my own header image with my StoryBook Creator 4.0.

  13. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or
    copyright violation? My blog has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any methods to help protect against content from being ripped off? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    • Hi there. I am not sure there is much you can do with having your content being ripped off other than ensure that you have a copyright sign on all your content and watermark any original images. Then if you have the time, money and energy you can follow up with ensuring they are respecting your content.
      I guess there is a lot of people out there who have no decency and integrity and will use whatever they want. I always try to acknowledge my sources, but I am happy if people use my ideas to create their own artwork – hence my instructions on how I have created my digital art etc.

  14. Thanks for the marvelous posting! I definitely
    enjoyed reading it, you might be a great author. I will always bookmark
    your blog and definitely will come back
    from now on. I want to encourage you to continue your great writing,

  22. Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words
    in your article seem to be running off the screen in Firefox.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.
    The design and style look great though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon.

    Cheers
