instructions
  1. Noel - 1 Cover a 21cm x 30cm blank with tree patterned paper. To create the main panel, stick a 5cm x 10.5cm turquoise piece of card onto a slightly bigger panel of red. Place a 4.5cm x 10.5cm piece of chevron patterned paper and a 2.5cm wide red fishtail banner on top.

    2 Stick gold glitter craft tape across the panel and add a 1cm wide strip of foliage patterned paper. Wrap blue twine across it before mounting onto the front of the design with 3-D foam pads.

    3 Cut the tree from the topper sheet and stick to the right of the card. Add a red tub to the base and embellish with punched heart and circle shapes. 4 Die cut letters to spell ‘Noel’ and secure to the layered panel. Add gold gems above and below and onto the tree pot.

  2. 3-D Baubles - 1 Die-cut eight bauble shapes from patterned paper, then score and fold each in half. Stick the wrong sides of four of the shapes together to create one half. Repeat for the other.

    2 Glue a string loop to one flat side of the ornament, then stick the two halves together. Decorate with bows and paper flowers on each side. Repeat to make two more using other papers.

  3. Holly Berry - 1 Create a 10cm x 15cm landscape card and cover the inside with red snowflake paper matted onto green. Round the corners before glueing in place.

    2 Trim the front flap to 10cm wide and round the corners. Cover with foliage patterned paper matted onto more green card.

    3 Cut red card, 3.5cm x 10.5cm. Cut a scallop-edged border along one side and matt a 2cm strip of tree paper on top. Wrap twine down the centre of the panel before lining the edge up with the spine and securing.

    4 Arrange berries, die-cut holly leaves and a bow in the top corner. Place adhesive pearls down the scallops.

    5 To finish, die-cut a greeting and secure to the front with 3-D foam pads, overlapping the trimmed card edge.
