Christmas Card & Easy Wreath Tutorial

Bev is back with some more fabulous tutorials!  
First up we have a card that you can make all from scraps!

You can use any shape you like. My samples show a star and a tree shape but also could be an ornament, a circle or any shape. 
Using scraps cut many colours of strips... glue them on a background. Trace the shape on top.  Cut the shape cutting off all the pencil markings.

The tree card I didn't even make a pattern. Just cut the strip different length to form a tree shape and add a trunk. I didn't even use a base for this one.. put it directly on the background piece and added more layers.

Easy Wreath Tutorial

You can change this one up to make it seasonally appropriate for Christmas, Thanksgiving, or even Easter.
