This card was created using Vivi Papers and origami folding techniques, which is a very useful starter point for many other items made using oragami techniques.
Following these steps, you too can create fabulous, yet simple, cards and other items.
Take 5 squares of paper ( 5"x5", 4.5"x4.5", 4"x4", 3.5"x3.5", 3"x3" )
Fold each square in half, open out, then fold in half again in the opposite way.
Fold in half again, but this time diagonally, open out and fold in the opposite way.
Fold two sides in towards the centre, forming a triangle.
With the triangle point away from you, take the fold of the top edge and bring the fold line to meet the centre, follow this on the other side.
Starting with the smallest shape, glue the next size one inside the last, leaving a desired space, making sure the centre lines are aligned up.
This snowflake was created using the same technique as above, but with a few changes.
3 squares of paper instead of the 5 for the tree, each triangle was inked around the edges using ColorBox Chaulk Inks.
Once the triangles have been glued together, glue the top-most of each one to a square of card moving around the square, so you end up with each of the triangle "blocks" on each edge of the card.
A simple piece of ribbon at the top and a nice bead or fancy button in the middle finishes it off nicely.
