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!
