    My cards are designed, but not printed and cut. Wish I’d gotten crafty instead. These are great. I have lots of that IKEA curtain bottom fabric in my stash. Love the red and white ones especially.

    You are seriously so clever and creative! I love ALL of these. I’m pinning this so I remember to do this next year. πŸ™‚

    I LOVE the red ribbon Christmas tree card, but they’re all super cute! I used to NEVER buy cards for any occasion. I ALWAYS made them. I have kind of strayed away from that. I don’t know if it’s because I’m short of supply, short on time or short on wanting to get the stuff out of the closet but I think I am going to get back into it. It’s so fun to do and it’s so personal!

    Hallmark eat your heart out!!! These are so great, Alex! Love that you did many different designs and got totally creative with it. I did ribbon cards one year and they were so fun. I think my favorite is the stripped fabric. There’s more than one way to use a cookie cutter.

    You go, woman! Christmas is definitely your thing.

    I am in LOVE! If forced to pick a favorite I would say the green one (3rd from the left in the last photo) and the rainbow one. Like Leah, I’m pinning this!!!!

    Those are all adorable (and a great use of leftover ribbon/fabric that I would otherwise just throw away… just what I needed, another reason to hoard stuff).

    BUT I cannot lie. My favorite is the bling-y one. Probably no surprise.

    I got all mine out yesterday. Way later than usual, but at least I got it done… I used to write stuff… now I just order the cards that leave no room for personalized messages. Total copout, but so much easier.

    I love these Alex – so graphic and simple and so beautiful! You should frame them as a festive set – they look great together!

    Three cheers for glue sticks, card stock and ribbons! These are so creative! You have such a great eye. My faves are the white ones made out of the curtain scraps, woo! The recipients are VERY lucky. πŸ™‚ I agree with Kate, above, set some aside and frame them for posterity!

    Stop it. Just stop it. I didn’t even send out Christmas cards this year, and you’re making me feel bad. (These are super cute though:P)

    It looks great! I didn’t send out Christmas cards this year either. Moving = no money. Heck we’ve been broke for about three years but I am still looking forward to the day where we can send out cards! πŸ™‚

    How fun are these?! Each one is so cute, unique and creative. You are definitely a pro. I used to handmade our cards and it always resulted in tears, so I go with our favorite photos and knock it off the “To-Do” list. These are so much more personal. I might have to revisit the idea for next year.

    great craft. i also love making my own christmas cards although i haven’t done it for a couple of years. i’ve usually recycled old christmas cards into new ones and did a tree theme one year. so easy and looks so cool. love this ribbon idea too!

    […] North Story. I can’t believe all it takes to make these cute Christmas trees is ribbon! If you have extra ribbon lying around, why not make these beautiful and personal cards? […]

    I love that rainbow card. You are so talented and have a real eye for color and the need for “white space” in your projects. I tend to over-busy things. I’m Really enjoying hopping around your site; everything is fantastic!

    Do you have any links to pages where I could find these (or similar) ribbons. I would like to recreate the red and white, and green Christmas trees. However, I cannot find ribbon like these. I would really really really appreciate it if someone would help me out! πŸ™‚
