Catch step-by-step instructions below. Click photos to enlarge:
- Die cut pieces as shown.
- Using large triangle die, cut envelope flap that was put aside as shown to create a thick border. Layer rectangle holly flourish insert onto cream rectangle base and add berries. Attach to envelope. Center large triangle die; carefully tape in place and cut out “V” to create the look of an envelope. Adhere die cut border to the cut edge of the envelope for a more finished look.
- Glue large triangle holly insert onto cream layer and attach to flap on second envelope base. Assemble 2 small triangles and adhere to sides of the front of the envelope to create the look of the envelope. Fold perforated sides of the two bases of the envelopes. Adhere one side together. Before gluing other side of the envelope together, fold both crossbar pieces and glue staggered to one side of the envelope base, one lower and more to the front and the second higher and to the back. Adhere the other side of the crossbars to the other side of envelope (this is a little tricky, but tweezers can help). Glue remaining tab to create the finished envelope.
- To create the poinsettias (7 created), burnish the backs of the petals and then turn over and cup at the center to create dimensional layers. Glue together, staggered, adding flower center and leaves. To create various size flowers, do not use all three layers for all flowers. With foam squares, add assembled poinsettias as shown. Add flourish and sentiment as shown or desired. To create a more “mail friendly” version, do not use foam adhesive when adding the poinsettias. This can mail flat, but a padded envelope is recommended.
Approximate Finished Project Measurement: 1.00 x 4.00 x 5.13 in I 2.5 x 10.2 x 13.0 cm
