These washi tape trees came together SO quickly. From concept to completion I did all three in 40 minutes! If you just execute it should take you far far far less.
Everyone has *too* much washi tape in their stash.. If you don't, you should. LOL. I often find that I just want to USE mine. So here it is. No die cutting, no machines, just scissors and a paper trimmer.
If you wanted to cut the edges of the washi tape at an angle it would look even more tree-like. :)
Okay, ready? Go!
I built the whole tree around this super cute choo choo train washi tape. Love it.
I used the white doily washi tape for a sweet effect that is very elegant in person.
Shh... I grabbed this star from the 4th of July line..
If you wanted to make these cards super easy to mail without extra postage just forgo the enamel dots and put a sticker star at the top instead. They look just as cute!
Sometimes the pictures make it hard to see the color differences. I just wanted to show you:
I grabbed some of the chevron washi to give the eyes a "direction" to follow.
I hope this inspires you to grab your washi tape stash and go to work on some easy to make Christmas cards!!
