12 Days of Christmas: Day 11:Christmas Tree card

This week’s project is an easy card that I designed especially as a project for children!  I’ve actually done it with 17 children in my daughter’s class! It went really well and the kids were really happy! (The teacher too!)  But you know what? Adults can make it too!!! It’s a very good way to use all your scrap paper!

The card is a little bigger than the standard 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.  I wanted the children to have more space to make their Christmas tree. This card is 4-3/4″ x 6-1/2″.  I used paper scraps from “Be of Good Cheer” designer series paper to form the tree.
