Ma­te­ri­als:

■ Ruler for mea­sur­ing the hole dis­tances

■ Pen­cil

■ Blank por­trait card

■ Em­broi­dery nee­dle

■ Var­i­ous colour­ful rib­bons

■ Dou­ble-sided sticky tape

■ Let­ter stick­ers in black

1. Us­ing a ruler and pen­cil, mark two op­po­site holes on front of the card at the bot­tom, equal dis­tances in from the edge. Grad­u­ally bring the marks closer to­gether as they as­cend so you fin­ish with one mark for the top cen­tre of your tree.

2. When you’re happy with the po­si­tion of your marks use the em­broi­dery nee­dle to make the holes.

3. Take a length of rib­bon and thread it through the two holes at the bot­tom. Bring the rib­bon ends to­gether on the in­side of the card and trim. Use a piece of dou­ble-sided tape to se­cure to­gether on the in­side of the card.

4. Re­peat step three un­til you have 5 rows of rib­bon.

5. Tie a small length of rib­bon into a bow and use dou­ble-sided tape to at­tach to the top mark of your tree.

6. Write your mes­sage on the front or use the let­ter stick­ers.
