Self-healing cutting mat; craft knife; metal ruler; pencil; scissors; glue stick
STEP 1 Lay red board on cutting mat and cut in half with a craft knife, using ruler as a guide. Fold one piece in half to make the card.
STEP 2 Measure card to draw 3 fur trim pieces on white board, and belt on black board. Cut out with scissors and craft knife. To make the buckle, draw a square on the back of silver glitter cardstock 15mm taller than the belt, and 15mm wider than the centre fur trim piece. Draw a smaller square inside, making a 7.5mm border. Cut out. STEP 3 Spread glue over back of the fur trims, belt and buckle. Position on the card front to form Santa suit and press down firmly for a few seconds to adhere. STEP 4 Use a gold marker pen to outline the fur trims. Draw buttons with a black marker and leave to dry. Add detail to the buttons using the gold marker, leaving 2 black dots for buttonholes. STEP 5 Tie a short length of ribbon into a bow. Apply glue to the back of the bow. Centre bow on top of fur trim piece and press down firmly for a few seconds to adhere.
