O Christmas Tree

I may not have started on any of my Christmas gifts yet, but I've got a nice headstart on cards and tags.  Here's another quick and easy greeting you can send out:

DIY Christmas Card, Paper trees, DIY Christmas Trees, Christmas Crafts

The paper is from last year's EK Success Yuletide collection.

To make the trees, just cut out a circle with a scalloped edge, cut it in half, and fold it until it looks like a tree.  Glue it down, run a bead of glue along the edges (I used a glue pen for more accuracy), and add some glitter.

Tah dah!  Another card down....only about 10 more to go~

Tamara - Way to make me feel totally inadequate. I haven't even started my Halloween cards and you are working on your Christmas ones!?! I love the colors you chose. I am leaning towards ballet slipper pink and a moss green for mine, but have not chosen a design. After seeing this I know I better get busy!

I love how these look. Who would have thought they were just circles?
I'd love for you to share this at my link party.

Thank you for great ideas, I intend to make some cards this year myself, so I am in the phase of collecting ideas, and this one really seems easy and looks nice!
