Christmas Cracker Card Tutorial
Well its Tuesday now and I am finally coming back to life after the Great Big Craft Extravaganza. What a fantastic two days. Crafters have to be the nicest people in the world, I had a wonderful time and everyone was great. I haven't been there for a few years and it has just gone from strength to strength, the shops, classes and organization was amazing..
Anyhow back to work and onto the tutorial. Being the lazy little thing that I am, a few years ago I came up with this Lazy Christmas Cracker card. I am sure there are loads of other cracker tutorials out there but at the time I couldn't find a tutorial that didn't involve payment so I decided to make my own!!!!
½ " and 2" (yep, I know.... I forgot to put the 1½" mark on the card and I forgot to indicate the 2" mark on the card...........and no I didn't take another photo to show it........hehehe.....I did say this was a lazy card!!!)
½" mark is really only there to indicate the center between the other two marks. Straight up from that mark at 1¼" make a dot on the card.
¼" dot and from the 2" mark to the 1¼ dot. Do this on all four sections and you will end up with four triangles.
Star Card tutorial will be up on the blog by the end of the week (either Saturday or Sunday Night), for those of you who haven't seen this at my demo in Athlone, just wait, you are going to love love love it.
