Wavy Christmas Tree

Now that the holidays are winding down, you may be looking for some ideas for those Christmas pages! On page 100 of the February issue, Lisa Storms made a great page about her Christmas tree and used photos of the tree to spell out her title.

Another cool feature about this page was the Christmas tree she made out of patterned paper. Here’s how to make your own!

Cut two large triangles from patterned cardstock, one slightly smaller than the other.

Punch both long sides of the triangles with a wave border punch.

Layer the triangles and machine-stitch them down the middle. If desired, pop up the top layer with adhesive foam. Embellish with gems and nested stars punched from cardstock.
Design: Lisa Storms.
