Santa - size 4.5 x 4.5 "

Medium Panel approx. 4 x 4"

Small Panel approx. 3 x 3"
Assembly Instructions
  • Cut out all pieces, color, embellish as you desire.
  • Using a paper piercing tool  add a hole in the bottom of the medium size panel.
  • Now take your large panel and line up the medium panel (upside down) on your big one.  Add a hole in the large panel where they line up.
  • Insert a small brad through the holes - your first two layers are now made up.
  • Open the layers with the medium on top and line up the smallest layer (upside down again) and add a hole through both layers.
  • Insert a brad.
  • Cut a small piece of ribbon, fold in half and pierce a hole through the top of the small panel and the ribbon and insert a brad. 
  • You're done.  How easy is that and you have a great card for someone special.
