Step 3

Use a craft knife and ruler to cut a length of glitter tape into narrower strips and add these over the washi at random intervals.

Flip the tree over and trim the tape to the outline. Mount the tree onto gold card and trim, leaving a narrow border.

Step 5

Step 6

Fix the tree to the centre of the card with 3D foam pads to finish.
