Twelve Days of Christmas Card

by Lindsay Law (follow)
Craft (32)      Christmas (20)     
Cutting themed shapes into craft paper is a good way to emphasise a theme. In this case, I cut a pear into Twelve Days of Christmas paper, which echoes the first verse: a partridge in a pear tree.

Using a light pencil, sketch out a pear shape onto the craft paper.

Glue the pear shapes down to the card. Wrap it around so one pear folds over on to the inside of the card.
