Directions

Trace and cut out the tree from a piece of evergreen card stock.

Fold a piece of ivory card stock in half and trim to 4 1/2" by 5 1/2". (This will be the base for the decorations.)

Run a 24" piece of the gold wire through the crimper.

Cut a piece of wire large enough to wrap around the top of the tree and crimp it on each side to hold it in place. Continue doing this down the length of the tree to create the "garland".

Color a scrap of the ivory paper with the Silver glitter gel pen and set aside to dry.

Mount the tree onto a 3" x 3 3/4" piece of Brown paper bag card stock, making sure to catch all the wire ends in the glue. Mount to a larger piece of ivory and trim with the Victorian paper edgers.

Cut out a piece of the holly patterned paper that is about 1/4" smaller all around than the folded ivory card base. Glue to ivory base.

Mount the matted tree onto the holly-patterned paper.

Punch out a bunch of stars from the silver glitter paper you created earlier. Glue randomly onto the tree.

Write a message inside and send out your holiday wishes.
