Supplies for how-to make DIY note cards:

  • blank note cards – you can buy a set of these at a craft store, or just fold over card stock and make your own!
  • graph paper for sketching out your pattern
  • scissors
  • felt
  • glue stick
  • thread

Here’s how-to start: sketch out the tree on the graph paper. Once you’re happy with it, make that your pattern and cut the shape out of the felt.

Glue the tree down on the card with the glue stick so it doesn’t slide around while sewing it down, then “decorate” (make) the tree by sewing it onto the card with your sewing machine.
