Easy Christmas Tree Card Craft

Here is another RICKRACK CRAFT easy enough for kids to make!  This activity is a fun, inexpensive CHRISTMAS TREE Card





This activity is in The Best of Martha Stewart Magazine's Holiday Handbook. (I'm a big fan!)

My previous post was a Rickrack Candy Cane. You can view it here.



Materials
  • paper/cardstock to make a card
  • green rickrack
  • scissors
  • glue

Directions
  • Cut a rectangle from cardstock and fold in half.
  • Cut several sections of rickrack. Start with a very small section and gradually increase the size. Cut approximately 6-10 sections
  • Glue the pieces on the front of the card in the shape of a tree.The smallest section goes on top and the largest goes on the bottom.
  • Add a tree topper, if desired. (I used a small piece of silver rickrack).
  • Add a tree trunk, if desired. (I used a small piece of brown cardstock. Martha used brown rickrack!)
  • Allow time for the glue to dry.
  • Write a holiday greeting inside the card!
  • Give or send the card to someone special!

The kids might enjoy listening to Christmas music while constructing their trees and reading a Christmas story while their cards dry.
