Stand-Up Figure Cards

Source: Martha Stewart Living, December 1999/2000


Trees fashioned from colored and textured papers are adorned with sequins and glitter.


  • Sequins

  • Glitter

  • Colored and textured paper

  • Utility knife

  • Glue


  1. Fold card in half horizontally; use a utility knife and a straightedge to make narrow pairs of slits perpendicular to the fold and about 1/8 inch apart. Vary the lengths of the slits so that trees will be staggered, not in a straight line.

  2. Push the tabs from behind, and crease in the middle.

  3. Trace templates onto paper, and cut out. Decorate these shapes, and glue to the tabs. Glue into a larger prefolded backing.
