To make pipe cleaner Christmas tree cards, you need:


 

The first thing you need to do is to cut the papers to fit in envelopes you plan to use for mailing. I cut mine to fit in letter envelopes, but you can use real card envelopes. Put a trash bag, a big piece of paper or a shower curtain liner on the floor and lay out the cardstock papers on it. Start painting the cardstock papers with colors with your children. My daughter, Coral applied her handprint to a couple of the cards. Let the paint dry for about 15 minutes (That is how it took mine to dry).

Fold all cardstock papers in half. Twist the pipe cleaners to look like Christmas trees. Attach them to the cardstock papers with hot glue. I applied hot glue to the edges of the pipe cleaners. Add a jewelry bead to the top of the Christmas tree with hot glue, too.


Lastly, add any holiday greetings you want to the front of the Christmas tree cards with rubber letter stamps and ink pad. I stamped “MERRY CHRISTMAS” on all of the cards.

Inside the cards, write a heartfelt message and have all members in your family sign the card. You can even do fingerprint stamps inside the card to make the Christmas tree cards more unique.
