Welcome to our Holiday Gift Guide Blog Hop!  These beautiful, brand-new products are available Oct 15 through December 31, while supplies last, so get yours today before they are gone.  If you are coming from Lynn's  blog, then welcome!  This blog hop is a great big circle so you can work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you'll find a complete list of participating Consultants here.

My card features some fancy folds, that just take a minute and add some really fun dimension to the card.



Cut paper into squares in sizes indicated in the photo above.

                                        This diagram indicates the first three folds you will make.

 Fold paper in half so that it makes a triangle and crease well.  Fold in half the other way to again make a triangle and crease well.  Your fold lines will make an "X" shape.

                            Now turn the paper over and fold in half, with the red side facing out,
                             and crease well.


 With the red side facing you, push the vertical fold that you just made to the inside so that it meets itself, and flatten into a triangle as indicated in the photo above.
Next, bring the two outside corners of the top triangle together and crease, to mark the center line.


Fold down each side of the triangle, lining up on the center fold line as indicated in the photo above.


 This is how your completed piece should look.  Repeat with the other three squares, then starting at the bottom, nest each piece in the smaller triangle that will placed above it.  That wasn't so hard, was it?


Now head on over to Lisa's blog and see her beautiful artwork!
