TOOLS FOR TREE BRANCH CARD HOLDERS
- Measuring tape

CUTS FOR TREE BRANCH CARD HOLDERS
* Cut lengths vary depending on preference. My branches measured about 1 inch in diameter.
STEPS TO MAKE TREE BRANCH CARD HOLDERS
Step 1) Once I had the section of my branch cut, I cut it into smaller more manageable sizes with a miter saw. At this point I kept the branches longer making it easier and safer to cut a notch. Then I cut a 1/4 inch notch in the end using the Rockwell Bladerunner. Step 2) I used a miter saw to cut the holders to size. Since I planned to use these for various reasons I cut a variety of lengths.
