To make the presents (above), follow steps 1-2, then for step 3, attach 20 coordinating 45mm squares of patterned paper to the five square scored sections on each strip. Attach 45x15mm contrasting paper strips to each square with sticky fixers. Continue with the rest of the steps, then finish with bows and gems.
For the tree (below left), make a base as in step 1, then cut four 100x75mm triangles, four 75x75mm triangles, four 55x75mm triangles and four 42x75mm triangles from green paper. Score and fold them all in half. Attach one of each of the different-sized triangles together in a strip, starting with the largest and working up to the smallest. Concertina fold the scored lines. Fold four 60x50mm pieces of green paper in half. Attach one half of each of these pieces to the bottom of the concertina tree strips. Attach the other half to the reverse of the base, then add a150mm square of white card. Layer two 10x140mm strips of green paper onto white card and stick together in a cross shape. Attach a green paper circle, punch a hole and thread with ribbon. Attach the reverse of the folded sections at the top of each tree strip to the ends of the cross. Add gems and pearls to finish.
These cards will fold up flat for easy postage!
