Watch this tutorial for tips on using the Festive Holly collection

Instructions: Start by die cutting the Festive Holiday Die 10 times out of White card stock. You can do more or less but I found 10 worked for the look I wanted. Score all 10 in the middle and use your bone folder for a nice clean edge. Once you have them all scored glue the 10 pieces back to back stopping before you glue the last 2 pieces together. We will do that later. Set this aside and let your glue cure fully.

Next die cut the Labels Forty-Two die 4 times and score down the middle and glue together like the previous step stopping before you close it up and also set aside. The Cardinals was stamped 4 times on White card stock with Black Onyx and die cut with the matching die before coloring with Metallic s Cream Chalks. The sentiment was stamped 2 times on White card stock with Versamark and heat embossed with Red Tinsel embossing powder and die cut with the Cut Mat Create 1B Die. 

For the assembly, start by gluing the colored Cardinals to the 4 panels as shown. Next take a piece of fishing twine or other twine approximately 14" long and fold in half. Apply glue to the remaining 2 edges not attached for the 4 panel section and place the cut ends of the twine into the center. Use a good amount of glue in the center to ensure that the twine stays fastened. Repeat this process with the 10 panel section and set aside to allow your glue to dry fully. Once the glue has dried glue your 2 sentiments back to back and finish with a few bows and some bling!
