This CAS Christmas card features a knotted ribbon Christmas tree, and this is how it's made:
You will need
a triangle shape cut from sturdy cardstock
ribbon, at least a half inch/1.5 cm wide
double sided tape
sticky tape (sellotape)
This is what you doCut a triangle of study cardstock (preferably the same colour as your ribbon)
Tie a single knot in a piece of ribbon and stick onto the triangle so that the knot is in the middle (wrap the ribbon to the back and fasten with sticky tape.
Repeat until the whole tree is covered.
There will be a little piece at the top of the tree that is difficult to cover, so add a bow.
(Tip : Stick a thin strip of double sided tape down the centre of your tree so the knots stay in place while you wrap the ends of the ribbon around the back)
I also used the following for my card:
white cs card base
green cs mat
