Since I've finished making Christmas and winter cards for Operation Write Home and reorganizing my workroom, I've forgotten to take photos of the Christmas cards I've made for my use until I starting making some with the 'leftovers'.
This one is using package tape I happened to see at $$$ Tree and pieces of black and white cardstock I had in my stash. The "photo" is actually a free sticker set sent with some freebie cards by an organization looking for a donation.

|Miscellaneous cards for the December 31 deadline...|
Friday, December 13, 2013
I got busy and tried to replicate at least one...My first attempt was to discover, you have to use very light weight paper and 12"x12" is the easiest size to start with the folding. If you look really closely at the photo you can see the diagonal fold lines.
|After creasing at 4 inches and 8 inches across and top to bottom, start folding the corners in toward the middle.|
|Keep folding toward center, all four sides|
|Keep folding toward center|
|At this point, the "card" will fit into a small envelope|
|Click on the photo to see the directional arrows to begin folding|
|Start folding the corners|
|Begin folding with one corner toward the left, moving to the right|
|Finally! A four-inch square card.|
