Christmas tree tags

Design 1

What you’ll need

  • Green paper, A4 size

  • Red paper, A4 size

  • Gold star

  • Pearl beads (different colors and sizes)

  • Glue

Step-by-step instructions

  1. Fold the green paper in half, widthwise. Right where the paper folds, draw a Christmas tree and carefully cut it, following the figure you just outlined.

  2. Fold the red paper in the same way you folded the green one in step 1. Then, glue both pieces of paper together, but make sure to use glue only in the parts that are close to the border of both pieces of paper.

  3. When you open the paper, that is now shaped like a card, you will see 2 Christmas trees appear in the center. Glue the points of the trees together.

  4. Stick a gold star on the top of the tree.

  5. Decorate both sides of the tree by gluing a few pearl beads of different colors and sizes, as if they were garland and Christmas lights.

  6. You can decorate the outside of the design with gift paper and ribbons.

“Merry Christmas”

What you’ll need

  • White paper, A4 size
  • Cinnamon stick
  • Golden ribbon
  • Golden beads
  • Liquid glue
  • A red star

Step-by-step instructions

  1. Fold the white paper in half, widthwise. Glue the cinnamon stick in the center of the resulting front cover of what will be the front of your card.
  2. Put 6 drops of liquid glue in a zigzag shape. These will be the points of the tree. Start at the top of the stick and then move all the way to the bottom by dropping glue to the left and right of the stick. The further you move down the cinnamon stick, the more the glue drops should be placed far from the stick.
  3. Stick the gold ribbon to the glue pattern you made in the previous step.
  4. Cut off the excess tape at the base of the tree.
  5. Place the star at the top of the Christmas tree.

Step-by-step instructions

  1. Start by creating 1-centimeter folds with the green paper.

  2. Press the folds tightly to make sure the accordion-like shape of the paper is maintained.

  3. Hold the folded paper tightly together and cut 5 snippets, each of them longer than the previous one.

  4. Fold the scrapbook paper in half, widthwise. Glue the 5 snippets right in the folds of the scrapbook paper, from shortest to longest. Each of the snippets should be about half an inch lower than the previous one.

  5. Close the card and make sure that each of the snippets is glued well to the card.

  2. When opening the card, you’ll see that the cuts make the fold look as if it has 3-D cubes.

  3. Decorate each of these cubes by gluing different gift wrap scraps to them
