Score and fold a gate­fold

1 card blank from a piece of

A4 green card. You’ll need to score a line 7.5cm in from each of the shorter ends.

Cut two 15x6.5cm pan­els of

2 let­ter-pat­terned pa­per and stick them to the front of the gate­fold flaps – with the left one at the bot­tom of the panel, and the right one at the top.

For the ban­ners, cut strips

3 of red stripy pa­per, one mea­sur­ing 4.5x8.5cm and an­other 4.5x10.5cm, two strips of mirri card mea­sur­ing

4x8cm and 4x10cm, and two strips of white card mea­sur­ing

4x8cm and 4x10cm.

Die cut one end of each of

4 the shorter strips into a fish­tail. Cut both ends of the longer strips to build a dou­bleended ban­ner. Layer the pieces to­gether, and use sticky foam pads to af­fix them onto the card front – stick the cen­tral one onto the left-hand side only. Top each ban­ner with a mini en­ve­lope em­bel­lish­ment, as shown.

Cre­ate a sen­ti­ment on your

5 com­puter then print it onto white card. Print ‘Dear Santa…’ and ‘I’ve been good!’ in two sec­tions, then trim and stick them on ei­ther side of your card front, as shown.
