    paper cut outs- attached

    Hi all and thanks for the lovely craft ideas in here! I am trying to make several at once! LOL

    I need some help from you crafty people, I have a desire to make the folded cut outs that are attachedby the arms or/and the feet. You know the girls and boys? But I want to make it with stocking, mitts, or wreathes or candy canes. Any ideas?

    Sounds like you already have ideas on what you want. Or are you looking for patterns oe what? They all should be easy, for wreath just have the sides of the wreath attach on the folds where the arms and legs would attach. I would use paper punches to add bow and ornament accents after opening. For the hat, like a santa hat, join the sides. for the mitten join cuff to cuff and tip to tip

    To fold them, take a long piece of paper and fold it in half and then in half again and one more time if desired. I wouldn't do more than 3 folds. Then when you cut it out, just make sure to leave the "attached" part on the fold. (I hope that makes sense...It does in my head, lol.) Like if it was paper dolls, you would not cut the hands, you would just cut the arms and leave the fold uncut for the connected part.

    Oh, I think I'm probably just confusing you more, lol. I'm going to go see if I can find a picture! =)
