4 squares of 1st colour 3 3/4 x 3 3/4
4 squares of 2nd colour 3 3/4 x 3 3/4, cut into diagonals
Cropodidle/ h*** punch
Decide on the inside colour/pattern and place face down
Then score the 4 corners from edge to the cross section of embossed lines
Now fold in all the straight lines and sharpen with a bone folder
Next squash the cornersAgain use the bone folder to make sharp creases.
Again lay the paper flat inside face down, take the squares and triangles and glue down with PVA.
If you wish to stamp on the paper or add embelishments now is the time to do it!
The squares and triangles are slightly smaller than the square folds, so make sure you centre the papers.
the next job is to punch holes on the corners on ech triangle tip, its important to position the h*** inside the triangle
continue for all 4 corners, 8 holes in all, then add eyelets
and thread ribbon through the eyelets, its best to use the ribbon direct from the roll
tie the ribbon off and fill
