Paint Chip Christmas Tree Cards
Create a beautiful, one-of-a-kind Christmas card this holiday season by using something a little unexpected - paint chips from the hardware store.
If you've ever done a home renovation project, you're quite familiar with these colored cards you'll find in the paint department. If you're like me, you've stood there staring at all the possibilities and wondered exactly how different sea foam green is from green mist.
To make your tree, just cut the card at a diagonal on your paper trimmer.
Then turn it the other way and cut off all the words.
When you use several of them together, you'll get this lovely collection of trees for your forest. Each one will be slightly different, so play around with the combinations and you'll have a woodsy scene in no time.
You can leave the trees bare, like in the first card pictured, or you can decorate them from your stash of embellishments. These are self-stick gems, but you can also use shaped buttons as ornaments or wrap the trees in twine or ribbon to act as the garland.
