I'm always waiting until the last minute to make my Christmas cards, but this year I'm getting a jump start on them.
I used a white card base 5 1/2 x 4 1/4. The red piece is 5 1/4 x 4 inches. The striped paper is cut 5 x 3 3/4 inches. The oval can be cut out of the center of your patterned paper or you can cut it separately. The tree is made by cutting squares 3 x 3, 2 1/2 x 2 1/2, 2 x 2 and 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 inches. With the pattern you want to show facing down, fold each square in half, open up and fold in half the opposite direction. Open up and fold diagonally then open and fold diagonally the other direction. Then you want to have the pattern you want to show facing you, fold in the two middle sections on opposite sides to create a triangle. Then I used glitter on the triangles. I lay my triangles on the card to see where I want it and then start with the top triangle, using glue dots to adhere them. Then the next triangle goes slightly inside the top one and so on down the line. I used a star shaped button.
Now you are off to see what inspiration Miranda has for you.
