It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Hello, my crafty peeps! Happy Friday and happy March 1st! Can you believe it?! A new challenge is live this morning over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project for MLCCB #8 – March Anything Christmas Goes! Anybody who knows me knows that I’m a sucker for fancy folds and am always looking for new ones to try. My inspiration for this very cool hanging reverse fold origami card (also called a squash card) came from one of my YouTube subscriptions HERE. Sam is one talented lady, and I could sit for hours watching her videos!

I created this card for my sister – it’s something she’ll be able to use year after year. And it’s contained in it’s own little decorated box! She loved it and showed it off to her crafty lady friends, lol!


The paper reminds me of a flannel shirt. I paired it with green crinkled paper which looks great on the white cardstock.


Here’s the lid off the box…


… and the card out of the box. I even decorated the inside, lol!


There are quite a few stamped and die cut Christmas sentiments as well as Christmas stickers used. I don’t typically use stickers on my projects but the ones I used on this came in the Photo Play paper packs and I just couldn’t resist. They are so stinkin’ cute!


Here’s a shot of the entire card hanging on the wall. It’s about 2-1/2 feet long!


And here are shots of the different sections. This was so much fun!


And here’s a shot of the back of it when it’s all folded up, which is actually the very bottom portion. LOVE how this turned out – I’m thinking I’ll be making more of these for Christmas this year!
