Twelve Days of Christmas Card

Twelve Days of Christmas Card

Posted 2014-12-31 by Lindsay Lawfollow
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.



Materials
  • Square card template
  • Twelve Days of Christmas craft paper
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Christmas message stamp
  • Ink pad

  • Method
  • First, fold your craft paper in half, then in half again, and then again.



  • Unfold, and then refold in an accordion fold.



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



  • Cut out the pear shape, being very careful of the stalk.




  • Lay out the pear shape across the bottom of the Christmas card.




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



  • Stamp a Christmas message on to the front of the card.
