Freebie Friday: Beaded Flat Lay Free Printable Christmas Card

bead tree flat lay card for blog

I made another flat lay greeting card.  It is so fun to use pretty gold beads to make the tree, then use them for another project after taking the photo.

I went to a local thrift store and got all these gold metal beads for $2.00!

Step One:  Sort the beads according to size.

Step Two: Cut pieces of 20 gauge wire into 13 graduated pieces. (Three will be the tree trunk at the bottom).

Step Three:  Place pieces of double stick tape on a piece of paper in the shape of the tree.

Step Four:  Thread the beads on to each wire and lay on the paper in graduation sections.

Step Five: Take a photo!

I purchased a digital download to be the background on Etsy.  I liked having the interest of the gold glitter, but a plain background would work.  I am including a free printable of my creation if you don’t want to make your own card.
