Wave hello to Jane Farnham, one of our new paper designers. She’s been busy creating this beautiful set of papers – the first lot in this year’s Christmas offering. Featuring delectable gingerbread men, woodland foliage, iced biscuits and more, there’s a little something for everyone. You’ve even got Hansel and Gretel themselves as they work their way through the forest to the tempting gingerbread house.
Check out our ideas…
Exploding Box Card
1. Draw, cut out, score and fold an exploding box card using the template. Round off the corners of each flap with a punch. Decorate the outside of the box and flaps with patterned paper, matting it on orange card and rounding off the corners where necessary.
2. Wrap baker’s twine three times around the front flap, then add a baker’s twine bow and jingle bell. Cover the three small strips with our geometric print and attach the flaps on the
strips inside the box with double-sided tape.
3. Matt geometric paper onto orange card, then attach to the back panel. Add a large sentiment with 3D foam pads. Cut out Hansel and Gretel, trees and a gingerbread house, then attach to the strips of card across the inside of the box. Fix small blue buttons in the corners of the side flaps to finish.
Mini Window Card
1. Create a 15cm square top-folding white blank and round off the corners. Trim biscuit paper, 14cm square, matt onto slightly larger pink card, then round off the corners before adding to the front of the blank.
2. Trim navy paper, 10cm square, and round off the corners. Layer onto pink card, round the corners, then attach to the card front with 3D foam pads.
3. Die cut four 4.5cm squares from white card and cut 2.5cm squares through the middle of each one to create frames. Round off the corners of each one, then add a gingerbread man behind each frame, trimming to fit.
4. Fix pink card behind each frame and adhere to the card front with 3D foam pads. Attach a sentiment to the right, followed by a jingle bell and baker’s twine bow. Finish with small
pink buttons in the corners.
Extending Topper Card
1. Create a 10.5cm x 15cm top-folding white blank and round off the corners with a punch. Die cut a 10cm square from white card, then trim an 8cm one through it to create a frame. Cut it in half, round off the corners, and attach so it protrudes from the top of the card.
2. Round the corners of navy paper, 9.5cm x 14cm, and layer onto orange card, leaving a narrow border. Round off the corners, then secure to the card front. Matt a 3cm wide strip of biscuit paper onto orange card and fix across the centre. Add a large sentiment on top with 3D foam pads.
3. Attach our navy print behind the frame with 3D foam pads. Cut out a gingerbread man, house and tree, then secure across the frame with 3D foam pads. Add a baker’s twine bow threaded with a jingle bell under the tree. Finish with small red buttons in the corners.
House Gift Box
1. Using the template, draw, cut out, score and fold the body and roof of a house from white card. Cut out our patterned papers for each face, layer onto green card, then glue in place.
2. Fold the main body of the box and fix together with double-sided tape. Fold the roof in half, place on top of the box, then secure one side of the roof to the flaps inside the box. Adhere a large sentiment to the roof with 3D foam pads.
3. Die cut a 4.5cm square from white card, then a 2.5cm square through the middle of it to create a frame. Round off the corners with a punch and add Hansel inside the aperture, so it looks like she’s leaning out of a window.
4. Attach contrasting paper behind the frame, then stick to the front of the box with 3D foam pads. Punch a hole in the bottom of the unfixed roof panel. Add baker’s twine to the top of the box underneath the punched hole, then thread through the hole and tie in a bow with a jingle bell.
