Assortment of green paint swatches
Pinking Shears (optional)
Start by marking out and cutting the paint swatch into a triangle (mine was 12cm long).
To try and make it look more 'tree like' I cut it out with the pinking shears. This of course is optional :)
Never one to pass up an opportunity to use buttons (!), I glued one to the top of each tree. The trunk is made from another section of a paint swatch (approx 2 by 4cm) and glued onto the back of the tree.
I also found a Christmas tree stamp I had, so cut out a shape on the back of the card.
Final step is to fix the tree to the front of the card....
I used a sticky foam pad as I liked the way it then 'stood out'.
Now I just need to write & send them out, better get a move on really :)
I've also got some paint swatches left over - any ideas on what to use them for...?!
