Introduction: Simple Christmas Tree Card

How to make a quick and easy card.

Step 1: Gather Materials

you will need:

2 sheets of paper (letter size or A4)

1 pair of scissors

Tape (double sided recommended, but any scotch tape works)

Green marking implements (crayons, pencils, pens, highlighter, marker, etc)

Step 2: Fold Card

Take one sheet of paper, and fold it in half by lining up the short sides.

Turn paper 90 degrees and fold in half again.

You should now have a card.

Set this aside.

Step 3: Draw the Trees

draw three triangles on the second sheet of paper.

See below for approximate sizes (side, side, base)

Triangle 1 : 1.5” x 1.5” x 1.5”

Triangle 2 : 2” x 2” x 3”

Triangle 3 : 3” x 3” x 4”

Step 4: Color in Triangles

using the green writing implements, color in the triangles.

To make it look like a pine tree, use long strokes that go from the top point down to the base.

To add depth, use 2-3 shades of green.

Step 5: Cut Out Triangles

cut out the triangles by cutting the sides straight, and curving the bottom.

Step 6: Dry Fit the Tree

Grab the card we set aside a few steps ago.

Place the triangles on the card, with the largest at the bottom and the smallest on the top.

Trim as needed to make it look tree like. Once you’re happy with how it looks, go to the next step.

Step 7: Tape the Tree Pieces

turn the triangles over.

Apply tape to the back of all three triangles. If using single sided tape, you will need to roll a piece so that you have a circle that is sticky all the way around before applying to the triangles.

Step 8: Fasten the Tree

take the tree pieces, and put the, tape side down on your card.

Step 9: Add a Message

write your message inside.

You’re now done.

Step 10: Complete!

Go give your card to your special someone. Or whoever you need brownie points from.
