  1. Christmas Cheer Card - 1 Fold a white card blank, 12cm x 14cm, then trim a smaller layer of red. Cut the red several times using the ‘Joy’ die.

    2 Create a pink tag, then die-cut a tree from the centre. Trim thin strips of textured card and adhere to the reverse of the tree.

    3 Mount a layer of blue behind the tree using foam pads. Matt the tree panel onto white card. Add a strip of green to the red layer and secure all pieces on the white base to finish.

  2. Tag List Organiser - 1 Take white card, 10.5cm x 14cm, then score and fold at 6cm and 8cm along the longest side. Adhere pieces of ribbon to the front and back. Add a smaller layer of red to both sides.

    2 Die-cut a bauble from the front of your white folder. Make five tag holders in different colours and five tags in white. Thread each one with twine.

    3 Using washi tape, attach two tag holders together so they lie in a stack, secured at the edge. Repeat until all the tag holders are attached.

    4 Add washi tape to the spine to keep all the layers together. Adhere the bottom tag holder to the inside of the folder.

    5 Stamp and heat emboss a sentiment in white. Trim, then stick to the folder. Glue thin strips of card in place as shown. Finish with white dashes around the edge of the aperture shape.

  3. Gift Tag and Box - 1 Add a circle of red to the top of an old chocolate box and cover the edges with green. Make a tag holder in green and a tag in pink. Die-cut a sentiment from the tag holder, then fix blue behind the letters.

    2 Die-cut ‘Joy’ into the tag, then draw white dashes around the edge and thread with red elastic. Add berries, leaves and a bow made with twine to the tag holder. Tie blue ribbon around the gift box and stick the tag holder on top.
