Ribbon Weave Christmas Tree


Here is my Ribbon Weave Christmas Tree card! A long time ago I made the wedding card shown below so I thought, why not do the same type of technique with a Christmas tree!
Here is a close up of the finished tree. I used SU rhinestones for the ornaments and just colored them with a permanent marker on the top. I love this technique!


Here is the bride card I made a long time ago.


Here is how I made the woven tree:
I stamped the tree from the Season of Joy stamp set and then cut out the center with a craft knife leaving the small border of white on the inside of tree image.
On the back I used Snail adhesive to surround the tree and cut strips of 1/4" grosgrain ribbon. I alternated going back and forth across the back of the paper trying to keep where they cross going down the center.


Once its finished this is what the front will look like. Then I put the rhinestones on.
