O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree...

I saw a super fabulous card on Mandy's (aka Crafty Fox) blog the other week and I had to have a go at one, it's called a Teepee card. There are loads of tutorials online, I followed this one for the basic measurements but not for the putting together so mine looks slightly different. I have used the design to make a festive card as the shape is similar to a christmas tree. I love how the card stands up and fold down for posting. What do you think...

This shows the side with the closure, I used a magnetic clasp by Papermania...

  2. Gorgeous card Sarah, really Christmassy - and such a super idea using the magnetic closure thing. The only one I've made has a ribbon tie but this is much neater and (should) be self-explanatory to the lucky recipient. Off to look for those magnetic thingies now! thanks for the tip. Di xx
