Trees fashioned from colored and textured papers are adorned with sequins and glitter.
- Colored and textured paper
- Utility knife
- Card templates
Step 1 of 3
Fold card in half horizontally; use a utility knife and a straightedge to make narrow pairs of slits perpendicular to the fold and about 1/8 inch apart. Vary the lengths of the slits so that trees will be staggered, not in a straight line.
Step 2 of 3
Push the tabs from behind, and crease in the middle.
Step 3 of 3
Trace templates onto paper, and cut out. Decorate these shapes, and glue to the tabs. Glue into a larger prefolded backing.
