Spin Art Christmas Tree Cards

We've been making Christmas cards!  Have you sent out your Christmas cards or do you even send them? There are just too many things to do for the Holiday Season! Is anyone ever done with everything??? I enjoy sending Christmas cards,  but agree that it can be just another added thing that we all think we must do! (Kudos to those who just agree to not send them!)  Cassie and I spent a morning creating these cards using our spin art scraps from our Spin Art Christmas Trees from last week! 

Here are all the scraps that we had left....I knew that we could use them for something!!!

So basically we cut out triangle shapes from the scraps and you could use any kind of paper because I'm sure you all don't just have spin art scraps on hand! (but you might!)

Then we added a brown construction paper tree trunk an white cotton for snow!

Then we used q-tips and paint for the light and ornaments and a star sticker for the top! Simple and sweet!

Here is another. You can cut out all different types of triangular shapes: tall , wide, curvy, etc.

Here are a bunch we did!

I have a feeling we'll be making more Christmas cards!

What do you think?

What is your take on sending Christmas Cards???

  1. So cute! I love how whimsical they all look! Will be saving this idea for next year's cards! Don't forget to link them up to my Christmas card linky!!

  2. One of the best ideas i've seen in a long time.

  3. I really like these! I sometimes wish I taught at a Christian school where it was okay to do Christmas themed art with the kids!

  4. I must get a spin art contraption. I'm loving all the spin art creations!!!

  5. I love your art everyday, and my take except this year, because I had no money I didn't but I hope next year will be better and I will send so many Christmas card, you wouldn't believe ...and of course you will get one next year, not at pretty as yours but you will get one from me. I love making an afternoon of it ok so Idon't bake but still I buy cookies very buttery cookies, sit down with my address book and enjoy....

  6. Melissa,
    These tree cards ARE whimsical, and exuberant!
    Each one is unique.
    I like to send cards, but have gotten away from them. I still send a few most years.
    I also like sending e-mail cards!

  7. Great use of the scraps - don't look "scrappy" at all, but awesome!
    Funny you should ask about cards: I was against, but roped into by Hubby...check for my post this Saturday about our card :-)

  8. After years of making our own cards, we gave in to Tiny Prints and have our made. Not exactly frugal, but it's a huge weight off my shoulders and the cards actually get sent! I love these loopy trees, Melissa. They're so happy!
