On the Fifth Day . . .

of Christmas, QKD gave to me -- Happy Holly Days!

Okay, again a traditional Christmas stamp set; of course, with the fabulous snow flakes, you could use it for a winter project. I used it for my 3-D Christmas ornament. I used my Cricut to cut out three star shapes (you could use stars, circles, etc. I have even done this with Christmas trees with my students. Just make sure that what ever you decide to use that it is asymmetrical.) I used three, but depending on how many panels you want you could add more; for circles, I usually use five or six.

After cutting out my stars, I then used one of the snowflake stamps from Happy Holly Days and my Tim Holtz distress inks to randomly stamp on the stars. Then I used my bone folder to score the lines and folded and glued together.

I then punched a hole in top and threaded in my ribbon. But think about this project; after I finished I realized that if you do name cards for Christmas wouldn't this be a great way to mark someone's place. I would use the three panels, but do not score and fold the third star. Fold and score two stars and glue to the third one; you could write the person's name on the flat third panel.

Tomorrow is a fun, non-traditional card.
