instructions
  1. Snowy Scene - 1 Stick an 11cm x 15cm panel of polar bear patterned paper to a white 13cm x 15cm blank, leaving a 1cm border at the spine. Wrap twine around the join and tie in a bow with two jingle bells, securing with glue.

    2 From white card, use the circular background die from the Reindeer and Sleigh set to cut a circular snowy background. Matt onto an 8cm circle of dark blue dotty paper before securing to the card with 3D foam pads. Infill the snowflakes with glittery die-cuts.

    3 Trim the right-hand margin of the front card flap and round the top corner with a paper punch. Die cut a ‘Let it snow’ greeting and secure across the bottom of the card. Finish with a snowflake sticker.

  2. Tree Treats - 1 Cut patterned paper to 9cm x 29cm, fold end to end and score across the width. Mark the centre point on the top and bottom ends, then score a diagonal line from each point to both the left and right ends of the central fold. Bring all sides together to construct a triangular box.

    2 Decorate the front panel with a stamped greeting and a length of pom-pom trim. Assemble the box along the five score lines.

    3 Punch a hole in the top, thread with twine and tie in a bow to close it. Repeat to make more in different patterned papers, then decorate the front of each with a glittery die-cut star.

  3. Crackin' Christmas - 1 Cover the front of a 9cm x 21cm blank with dotty paper. Measure 14cm from the bottom and clip a triangle from each side. Tie snowflake ribbon around the narrowest point.

    2 Tear 9cm wide pieces of white card and vellum to make snow drifts. Layer and stick them across the bottom of the card and trim. Stamp a greeting in blue ink at the bottom.

    3 Cut out a fox and two trees from the topper sheet and stick to the torn layers. Add a band of tree patterned paper across the top and glue on a length of pom-pom trim.

    4 Thread twine through two jingle bells, tie in a knot and tuck it behind the ribbon bow, securing with glue.
