How to make

Step - 1

Start by trimming three 6 x 6” panels from Kraft cardstock then score each one diagonally through the middle.


Step - 2

Glue each panel on top of each other at the diagonal score lines ensuring they fold freely.

Fold the score lines and bend the card around to form the card base, one outer edge will sit under the opposite outer edge forming a triangular shape.

Step - 3

Trim four patterned paper panels slightly smaller than each side fixing in place with glue.

Decorate three of the sides with stars, flowers and leaves ensuring to leave one outer panel for tucking underneath.


Glue two lengths of twine behind flowers and attach each one at the edges where the two side meet to form the tree shape, tie a bow to keep the tree upright.

Step - 5

For the envelope take a 12 x 12” piece of Kraft cardstock and score at 4” 4 ¼“ 10 ½“ and 10 ¾“ turn 90 degrees and score at ½” ¾” 9 ½“ 9 ¾“ and 10 ¼” cutting along the 10 ¼“ discard the remaining strip.

Cut out all four corners where all the score lines cross over then fold along all of the lines burnishing with a bone folder.

Step - 6

Trim a 3 x 8 ¾” panel of matching cardstock, round two of the corners then glue to the shorter end.

Step - 7

Punch four small holes using a anywhere screw hole punch, ensure the holes meet up when the envelope is closed. Add some twine though the holes as a closure.
