BtCR March 25th

2-a 2-a 2-a 

Christmas cards to date : 15

Here I am with another Beat the Christmas Rush instalment. I have to say I’m quite pleased with myself, 15 cards done and dusted already!Sue 2I saw this idea on Pinterest and thought it was a great way to make a bit of a dent in my scraps box; just cut fourteen 2” pieces of patterned paper, starting with 2”x½”  increasing in size by ¼” each time up to 2”x4”. Wrap each piece around a pencil and glue to make a hollow tube then stick to the card in a triangular tree shape. You can leave it like that or decorate the tree with bits and bobs. I did spray the cards with green Mr Huey’s before I started, but only because I just got them. :o)

Fab cards Sue, I like the addition of Mr Huey's:)

I think I sent you a card similar to this the year before last. They are great fun to make.
