Crazy Tree Notecards


When I put together the Persian Plum kit I received from Books Quilts and Sewing’s giveaway, the first step was to sew a small, neutral-colored square onto a larger colorful solid or floral triangle and then cut the tips off both. This left me with a stack of perfect little triangles, and of course I decided I must do something with them as well! I always keep a stash of blank notecards and some craft glue handy, so here’s what I came up with (adding a tiny strip of one my other remnants for the trunks). I think they’ll become a nice little gift for a friend or family member someday soon! ♥

  1. Love the recycling mode–and so absolutely treerific! It would also be adorable to put these onto a fabric bases (you could use some form of applique) and make a forest (tree quilt).

  2. Love, love them! Like very cheerful xmas trees!
    In another note… I’m drowning in laces over here, will you like some? It’s almost all vintage. I’ll be more than glad to mail it to you 😉 let me know what you think!

  3. Love how you made use of your scraps… Very inspiring idea… Oh by the way, I nominated your for the Very Inspiring blogger award and the One lovely blog award… Congrats! Have a great weekend.


  4. I love love love this! I am so putting this on a “to do” for a Christmas Card, as each year I (we) try to do a homemade version of the Christmas tree. This is a great simple idea and looks so good!

    • Thank you! I’ve never made my own Christmas cards but I plan to this year, and I think this would be fun! Another blogger suggested holiday scrapbook paper for the triangles . . . that would be so cute, too! I hope to see yours on your blog when the holidays roll around! 🙂

      • I will post some, I can tell you the ones that people love are the old vintage one. I take cards from back in my grandmother time and dress them up with lace and buttons or cut out the the unique pics. Right now I am making safety pin bracelets for cancer survivors.

        Yes, I stay busy with five kids, and a husband, but God has graced me with a passion to create, share and inspire others. I am never overwhelmed through Christ. One day at a time. JOY – Jesus first, Others second, and self last.

        Thank you for your time spent in fellowship with me.

        Blessings my friend ♥
