Rolled Paper Tree Cards

Hello Blog World,

I have seen a few rolled paper trees out there in blog land this year and thought what a nifty idea. 

Here are some of my favourites

Go Check them out they are awesome, the second one even has a tutorial. 
Isn’t that bunting just darling!!

So ever since I saw my first one a few months back I knew I wanted to do something similar this Christmas.   All these creations are in frames or on canvases and used for decorations.   I didn’t want to do that, so I needed to make some extra Christmas Cards and thought hey why not??

So here is my take on the rolled paper trees in card form.

And then I wanted to change the colours up a bit and use up some scraps, so this one came about also

I can’t decide which one I like better, they are both different in their own little way, so they both appeal to me on different levels, and they were very simple to make!  I could definitely roll out a few of these in a day (pun intended sorry)

So I am going to enter these in the following card challenge -  Check them out there are some great cards out there.

Now I need to make some gift card holders (slowly ticking everything off the list), until then happy crafting.
