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 email@example.com.

1 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.
