Winter Trees

I followed this tutorial by Jennifer McGuire to make these trees: https://www.jennifermcguireink.com/2020/12/handmade-trees.html

I like the way the lighter version came out the best. I keep calling it the “Blue Spruce” tree even though I know nothing about trees and it probably looks nothing like one lol. The die cutting took a little time but other than that these were incredibly easy to make. It was fun to use paper to create something 3-dimensional for a change.

Materials used:

“Evergreen Tree”

  • Concord and 9th Take A Bough Encore dies
  • Concord and 9th cardstock colors: Parsley, Clover, Evergreen
  • Benzie felt colors: Evergreen, Parchment, Rainstorm
  • Bamboo skewer
  • Wood slice

“Blue Spruce Tree”

  • Concord and 9th Take A Bough Encore dies
  • Concord and 9th cardstock colors: Oceanside, Sea Glass, Aqua Sky
  • Benzie felt colors: Parchment, Rainstorm, Blue Spruce
  • Bamboo skewer
  • Wood slice

(I guess it can’t be too far off from a Blue Spruce if that’s what one of the felt colors was called!)
