Star fold cards
WHAT COULD BE more festive than a star-shaped Christmas card? This clever little card fold offers the perfect way to display all your favourite yuletide papers and toppers, and looks so pretty hanging above a mantelpiece, too! We think that star fold cards are the ideal design for surprising your loved ones, especially as the inside of the card can be decorated with a special seasonal message or thoughtful greeting, so give them a try – they’re sure to be starstruck! And remember, we love to see what you’ve made. Email a photo of your festive star fold cards to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Mark the centre of each side and score between the marks to create a triangle in the centre. Mark 4cm towards the point on each side and score between these marks.
Fold in along the inner score lines (valley fold) then back along the outer lines (mountain fold) on each point. Flip the folded card over to show the star shape.
Cut your cardstock to 22x26cm. Mark the mid-point of the 26cm edge and cut from here to each of the two opposite corners to make an equilateral triangle.
