Folded Circle Tree Tutorial

These cute little trees are not my original creations. I've seen a lot of these out and about in stamping communities and thought I'd give them a try. They are perfect additions to CAS cards, as well as tags and scrapbooking layouts.

These are fabulous and I really think the bows are very effective instead of the stars... personal taste I suppose. You've just given me an idea of what to do with my twine. hugs Sharon

Thank you for your comment khushifairy. The best thing about card making is that you get to be creative and add original touches to every piece of art. I happen to love decorating my Christmas tree with bows, so this works for me. Stars, buttons & rhinestones would make nice alternatives!

I love this card and saw these adorable trees in the class I took with Jennifer McGuire! They are so cute and work out perfectly with double-sided paper!!

Everything you create is amazing!
