Ma­te­ri­als:

■ Piece of blank pa­per

■ Sharp craft knife

■ Blank cards and en­velopes

■ White (PVA) glue

■ Sten­cil brush

■ Glit­ter in con­trast­ing colours

■ Dia­manté dec­o­ra­tions (op­tional)

1. Draw a tree mo­tif onto the piece of pa­per. Care­fully cut out the tree mo­tif with a sharp craft knife to cre­ate a sten­cil. Place the tree sten­cil in the cen­tre of a blank card and ap­ply a layer of glue us­ing the sten­cil brush.

2. Pour the glit­ter lib­er­ally onto the sten­cil and press down lightly. Leave for about 10 mins so that the glue be­gins to dry. Shake off any ex­cess glit­ter.

3. When the glue is com­pletely dry, care­fully lift away the sten­cil mo­tif.

4. Fin­ish the tree with tiny dia­manté dec­o­ra­tions.
