Stars and Flakes
My project for Creative Expressions this week is a simple star card, it's made using papers from the John Lockwood 12 Days Of Christmas paper collection.
I have cut an equilateral triangle from one sheet of paper, each side is 8 inches long.
The triangle is marked on each side at 2 5/8, 4 and 5 3/8 inches, then scored between these marks to form the fold lines. The fold nearest the point will need to be a 'mountain' fold and the fold nearer the centre will need to be a 'valley' fold.
I have used a small snowflake stamp and Cosmic Shimmer Bright Gold embossing powder to add a little sparkle to my star.
There is an inner white card panel that has been stamped and embossed with a greeting, this is stuck over the thread and gives somewhere to write a message.
These would be great hung all over your tree with little messages inside, they can be made smaller, just make sure you keep the sides an equal length. Using the basic shape your decoration could be simple, like this one, or much more elaborate covering each section with coloured layers and images.
There are so many things you can make with this paper stack and with 48 sheets in the collection you can co-ordinate your decorations, cards and gifts.
