this is such a fun little project that i found in sunset magazine.

it’s quick and if you probably have a lot of the materials needed on hand!

i punched one half hole at the top of the paper ( to create a groove) and six half holes at the bottom. then i used the embroidery thread to weave the tree from top to bottom.

i taped the beginning of the thread and then the end-it’s on the backside so no one will ever see it! then i slipped the tree into a black photo card and finished with a hand-stamped ‘merry’ tag.

this would be a great project to do with kids. older kids can probably do the project independently. smaller kids can decorate the tree with stickers after it’s made.


do you hand-make your holiday cards or gift tags?
