Rebecca's Christmas Tree

Hiya, today i spent the afternoon crafting with my gorgeous girl Rebecca age 9! She wanted to get started on her Christmas cards so decided to raid my stash - I suppose that's what mum's stash is for, isnt it???? Anyway, she decided to make a Christmas tree shaped card and this is how she did it ( in her own words lol): First me and mum drew a Christmas tree shape then we cut it out and put it on a folded side of a card and drew round it and then cut it out so we had a proper card that stands up like a normal card.


Then i used some of mum's black and white paper and punched out LOADS
of love hearts.




Then i stuck the love hearts upside down on the Christmas tree card one row black and one row white until the card was covered up. Then i put a silver star on top of the tree and coloured the bucket in with mum's black promarker and then tied a ribbon round it.
This is what it looked like in the end i hope you like it and i think i am going to make some more in different colours for my brothers for Christmas.
I hope you like my card.
Love from
Rebecca x
age 9
