Tutorial:

  • Fold sheet of cardstock in half.
  • With pencil mark a few dots and lines on the card to mark the branches of the tree as shown above. These will be your guides for the tape placement.
  • Design and print out a greeting with holiday images – I just did this in Word.
  • Glue Greeting to inside of card.
  • Cut varying lengths of Washi tape.
  • Using pencil marks as guides, attach alternate lengths and colors to the front of the card to construct an image of a tree.
