TLC403 ~ Folded Christmas Tree ~ (11/12/12)
TLC403 ~ Folded Christmas Tree ~ (11/12/12)

I hope you had a wonderful weekend!
Sending love and prayers to those still struggling from Hurricane Sandy and Athena and also THANKS to all our Veterans!

I am so excited about the Holiday Blitz Tutorials that are being shared each day in the Resources section. There are SO many fun ones that we will probably be doing a lot of them in my Technique Challenges up to the holidays!

The challenge I chose for today is so much fun -- it looked so hard when I saw Beate's sample and even when I glanced at her amazing tutorial , but it is SO EASY! You have to try these. It took like two minutes to make the tree.

So today's challenge is FOLDED CHRISTMAS TREE.

My sample: Bright and Beautiful Christmas

Not ready for Christmas or don't want to make a holiday or winter card?
How about a tree for fall - or another season?
My second sample: You're A Hoot

Have fun with this! I know I will be making a lot of these trees: Cards, place cards for Christmas dinner, tags for gifts, lots of stuff!

Thanks for the inspiration, Beate!

:D, I was hoping that maybe it would be something from the Holiday Blitz for the TLC. I'll be along whenever I get the housework and shopping done. Thanks, Judy.

Cute and looks easy!
Thanks for a great Christmas tutorial.
I hope to try it out sometime today!

hobbydujour 11-12-2012 07:04 AM

Judy, you are so correct.....cute and EASY! Part of the "easy" might be Beate's excellent instructions. : ) Love the look of the trees and the chance to use them in a variety of styles. I went sort of elegant. Thanks, Judy & Beate!

Thanks for sharing Beate's fun tutorial today, Judy! Something to share with my stamp club this week : ) I even followed pretty closely Beate's sketch she used in her tutorial:

Merry Christmas Tree

cjzim 11-12-2012 09:48 AM

Thanks Judy, for this fun tree and tutorial from Beate - I finished the whole card and then realized my trees are upside down in my dsp! I guess it's Monday!

I don't know why this was such a challenge for me! But now I have four trees with Stickles drying and I'll be back with a card or two later on. Thanks for the cute tree technique!

Oh my gosh Judy....love this challenge. I have wanted to try this tree forever. Ok give me a day or too and I am in....lol

moonoodie 11-12-2012 07:19 PM

I love this little folded Christmas Tree! I didn't have double-sided paper, so I stuck 2 papers together and cut the circle and it worked great. Here's my card: Merry Merry by moonoodie - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

So much easier than I thought it would be! Folded Tree

tmluke 11-13-2012 08:38 PM

This challenge was so fun! These trees are fun and easy. Beate, thanks for posting the tutorial. I watched it twice. I didn't have a large circle punch or nestiblity, so I used a cd, traced around it, and cut it out.

Here's my Merry Christmas Tree . Enjoy.

lovesrubberstamps 11-14-2012 06:01 AM

I created a Tri-Shutter card (my first one!) and the back panel features one of these adorable trees! Once I figured out the last fold (which I had to be tired because I watched the video 4 times) ... I was fine - LOL! Thanks for looking :)

naturecoastcrafter 11-14-2012 01:50 PM

Well this was fun. Thanks to both of you.
