To create this layout, you will need:

Get a closer look at the Festive Plaid Paper Pack in the video below!

Step 1: Use the red and green plaid patterned paper as the base for this layout.

Step 2: Cut a piece of Leaf Green Cardstock to measure 11-1/2″ x 11-1/2″ and adhere it to the layout.

Step 3: Cut a piece of the cream plaid patterned paper to measure 11″ x 5″ and adhere it to the lower portion of the layout.

Step 4: Cut three pieces of paper for photo mats, two measuring 3-1/4″ x 3-3/4″ and one measuring 4″ x 3-3/4″. Adhere them to the cream plaid patterned paper. Adhere two photos measuring 3″ x 3-1/2″ and one photo measuring 3-3/4″ x 3-1/2″ to the mats.

Step 5: Adhere the border sticker along the top edge of the cream plaid patterned paper and trim it to length.

Step 6: Cut squares from various pieces of plaid patterned paper measuring 5-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, 5-1/4″ x 5-1/4″, 5″ x 5″, 4-3/4″ x 4-3/4″, 4-1/2″ x 4-1/2″, 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″, 4″ x 4″ and 3-3/4″ x 3-3/4″. Cut each square in half, from corner to corner, creating two triangles. Continue cutting each additional square 1/4″ smaller, if needed/desired. Layer the triangles on top of each other, placing some at a slight angle, to create the trees. 

Step 7: Adhere stickers and embellishments, using Foam Squares on some for added dimension.

Step 8: Doodle along the outer edge of the cardstock and the outside of the triangle pieces. Journal as desired.

  1. “Cut several squares measuring 5-1/2″ x 5-1/2″. Cut each square again, this time 1/4″ smaller.”

    Don’t understand why you would do this. Please clarify.

    1. I was wondering the same thing? Am I cutting each square to 5 1/4 x 5 1/4? Or 5 1/2 x 5 1/4? And why not just cut whichever size to begin with? I love the idea but am definitely a little confused about this part.
