A True Paper Craft!
Happy Glorious Monday!!! How's that for trying a positive attitude? lol! I wanted to share with you a card I made over the weekend. I was so inspired by an article (and project) that I saw in Card Creation's magazine last month. I had to try it. Now keep in mind that I need everything to be EZ PZ for me to follow along. For my easily distracted mind, I kinda got lost in the instructions and ended up making this tree instead of the medallion that they featured. I have to tell ya that I had a lot of fun creating it and I hope that a few of you might try this amazingly easy design. Thanks for dropping by! (hugs)
Here's how I did it:
First cut four squares: 1@ 1 1/4
2@ 2 1/2
1 @ 3 1/4
Now fold each square the same way:
First point to point
Then unfold and fold in half:
Now fold each side to the center:
(This is how the 3-D look is achieved)!
You are now ready to form your tree. It's just that easy!
(Start with the smallest square and end with the largest).
Next, Cut a piece of brown cardstock for the trunk.
*I attached mine with glue dots which is both quick and secure.
