Christmas Tree Paper Chain Card

Christmas Tree Paper Chain Card

Posted 2014-12-21 by Lindsay Lawfollow
Paper cutting can make beautiful repeatable shapes. I used some red and white paper and an asymmetric tree design to make a striking handmade Christmas card.



Materials
  • Blank greetings card
  • Coloured craft paper
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Craft knife
  • Glue
  • Christmas stamp
  • Stamp pad

  • Method
  • Fold your paper in half, then in half again, and then again. Press down each fold with a ruler to make sure it is neat.



  • Unfold and then refold in a concertina - this is known as an accordion fold.



  • Draw the asymmetric tree design that will repeat along your paper. You can do this with a ruler, use a template, or simply sketch it free-hand.



  • Cut out your design with scissors or a craft knife. Depending on the thickness of the paper you may find it easier to use scissors. If quite thick then use a craft knife and go through a couple of layers at a time.



  • Unfold your paper and neaten any rough edges.



  • Stick on to the greetings card.



  • Stamp a Christmas message at the top of the card.
