Printing the Christmas Card Templates

Begin prepping for making your Christmas Tree cards by printing out the templates onto your choice of card stock. I used this Card stock. You can print out all 3 templates included in the PDF, or just choose whichever page is your favorite. The options say “Merry Christmas”, “Tis the Season”, or “Merry & Bright”.

Cut up your fabric scraps

The fabric pieces I used were roughly between 1″ – 2″ tall and up to 4.5″ wide. Find the video above to see my process for trimming them – it’s easy & improv-y! The tutorial shows how to make a Christmas tree, but I’d love to see if you have any other ideas too!

The fabrics I used are all Connecting Threads blenders and solids. Check them out here.

Stitch the Fabric Scraps onto Card stock

Once you have your design laid out, the next step is to stitch the fabric pieces directly onto the card. Use a large stitch length so the needle doesn’t punch too many holes into your paper. I put my machine at 4.5 length stitches. Once the fabric is stitched on, fold the card stock in half to make it into a card.

Write on the inside of the scrappy fabric Christmas card

Now it’s time to make it personal! Write a sweet, thoughtful note to your loved one on the inside of the card, and then give it to it’s recipient!
