DIY Christmas Tree Cards + Wrapping Paper Envelopes

 Since Thanksgiving is officially over, I think I can now officially begin talking about Christmas. Of course the first thing that happens around my home is Christmas cards. The idea is to get them out, and timed perfectly so everyone gets them in their Friday mail. That doesn't always work out, but this year it has, and instead of store bought cards I decided it could be fun to do a DIY. Sure they aren't as much fun as those family photo type of Christmas Cards but since my family isn't about that I think homemade Christmas are the next best thing. These Christmas Tree Cards and Wrapping Paper Envelopes that they go into are very easy to make without many supplies and are budget friendly.

 To start find cardstock in your color of choice. I then cut it to the size I wanted and printed "Merry Christmas from the Lei Family".  Then make your Christmas Tree. I used an embossing folder to create mine, however Stamping is also a fun idea. From there I filled the lines of the tree in with a green sharpie, Then glued sequins on for ornaments and glitter for the garland and star. Last sharpie on the tree skirt. And you're done with the card except for the signing.

Originally I'd wanted to put the cards into clear envelopes but after consulting the post office it didn't seem like such a good idea so I came up with something cuter. Wrapping paper cards. Cut a 1 ft by 1 ft square. Then put the card in the middle and triangle fold the pieces in. Instead of tape I decided to use the address labels as the closure.
