DIY Paper Strips Christmas Card

As I mentioned above this is the sixth card I have made from this one kit of paper and stickers.  You can click on the following names/links to see the previous cards.  Ornament Card, Glitter Christmas Card, Farmhouse Style Christmas CardChristmas Reindeer Card, Colored Christmas Tree Card.  This has really been a fun kit and I still have a bunch of paper left to keep making cards.  

What I love about this is you only buy one kit but your family and friends all get a different card and you don’t get bored or tired of making the same card over and over again.  

The supplies list for this paper strips Christmas card is just about identical as the previous cards but here it is.  I have included some affiliate links for your convenience and you can also find these supplies in my Amazon Store!  You can read my full disclosure here!

Here are the step by step instructions I promised!

Step 1:

Cut at 5.25 x 4 inch piece of white card stock for your background piece.   Then start cutting half inch strips of different patterned papers.  I used the red snowflakes,  white snowflakes, green trees and the different colored snowflakes with a kraft background.  The beauty of these kits is that all of the papers coordinate so you don’t have to worry if things match.

Step 2:

Start placing the strips of paper onto the white background piece.  Start on the diagonal and place each piece right next to the last.

Once these are all adhered to the white background piece, turn the entire thing over and trim off the excess.
