Directions:

Step 1: Cut 1 piece of kraft card 5 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches and 1 piece of kraft card 4 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches.

Step 2: Cover the smaller piece completely with your choice of paper and score at 1/2 inch from each end.

Step 3: Using a corner rounder, round all corners.

Step 4: Mount the larger piece with your choice of paper and round all edges before sticking together.

Step 5: Edge all edges with a little distress ink - I used Forest Moss.

Step 6: Using a pencil push through the smaller piece at just above the score line on both ends, I used a bit of foam underneath, you could use bluetac too, then fold each score line

Step 7: Push your candy cane through and add glue to each of the score flaps.

Step 9: Punch a small hole through the top corner and thread through some ribbon, tie this in a little knot at the top to form a hang.

Step 10: Decorate as you wish. I used some of the sentimentals stamps and cut them using a diecut, I used the cute little robin from the postbox die'sire set and a little red crushed glass to him to give a little detail, each one I have decorated differently, I brought some little jingle bells to add to them, I have also used one of the new kraft quilling fringe flowers.
