Washi tape Christmas Cards

A quick tutorial on the Christmas cards I made this year to send to family and friends.  They are available in my etsy store.

You will need: blank card/envelope, index cards, washi tape, scissors, little bit of yarn and a sewing machine.

Tape the washi tape on the index card.  I used 4 strips on each of the long ends of the index card.

Trim it, and then cut into two sections of 4-washi tape-panels.

Cut the 4-strip-panels in half.wpid-img_20141206_013838.jpg

Then shape each half into a Christmas tree.

Place a Christmas tree in the center of a blank card, adding a little strip of yarn for the tree trunk.

Stitch it in place on your sewing machine.

Write a holiday note.  And mail it to someone special.
