Pink Peppermint Christmas printables. I say going nuts because, as usual, I bit off more than I could chew. I made bunch of paper ornaments, these 3D tree cupcake toppers, a giant collection of gift bags and matching 3D paper bows in coordinating mix-and-match patterns, a beautiful snowflake garland and a forest of 3D pink peppermint Christmas trees in three sizes. Whew! Once I got going, I couldn't stop. Here's a peek at them:
To make the toppers, just print them on good quality card stock or thick paper. Cut out as many panels as you want. I used eight panels in the samples, but you don't need to. You can mix and match the patterns or use all one color; it's up to you. Once you have the number of panels you want for each, just fold them in half with the printed sides facing in.Glue them back-to-back with a glue stick (I recommend the repositionable kind), leaving the last two panels open. Once the glue has set, open up the tree to expose the center "spine." Add a thin line of liquid glue down it and then lay a toothpick or cocktail pick (cocktail picks are slightly larger than toothpicks) down the center. You can now close up the last two panels with the glue stick.
And here's the link to my new e-book, which contains tutorials and links to all the printable projects pictured on the cover. It's available for $2.99 from Amazon. If you're not familiar with how Kindle e-books work, you can access it from any tablet or computer, so you don't have to own a Kindle to read it.
