This contest has ended. Congratulations to Annette S. who was our lucky winner! This is a pattern we were all excited to see come to fruition - this one definitely falls under the fun & functional category! We started talking about this idea over the holidays last year as the Christmas cards started to come in. - and we started running out of places to put them! This Christmas Card Trees are a perfect place to stash - and show off - your Christmas Cards. Plus it takes very little room - just hang it on a door or wall!. We came up with two different tree designs. For the quilt lover, we designed a version that has pieced pockets. Half square triangles are a fun and simple way to add a little holiday pizzazz to the project. The tree is structured with a batting lining and has a hidden ring for hanging at the top. The other design option is to use clear vinyl for the pockets. We thought this would be a fun option so you can really see the cards. On this version we used a solid background of Crossroads Denim. On this version we also used buttons and appliqued circles to create the look of ornaments. This way the tree already looks cute before you have even added your cards. This contest has ended, thanks to all those who entered!
