The Flatfold !

Here it is, the attempt at a Flatfold with my Forever Friends Christmas piece. It's not perfect but I am pretty pleased with it. There is just an annoying small blob of glue showing on the top left hand corner!!
Frony view -
And the side view -
And the back view -
My mom bought me the material and I have enough left to do the other Forever Friends Christmas Stocking stitching I finished a few months ago. So I will have matching Flatfolds!
I am in the "Christmas" stitching mood! I have also just completed this Christmas Tree on perforated paper. It is in the latest World of Cross Stitching magazine and will make a 3D card. I will post another photo when it is done.
Otherwise I have been working on some charity stitching, sadly the photos are a bit dark of these so I'll leave them off!
Sorry just a brief post to show photos as I have to go and pick up Becki in a moment from dancing!
Happy stitching
Ginnie xx

Congrats on the flat fold Ginnie, it looks great, I'm yet to pluck up the courage to try one but I guess once the first one is completed the next gets easier?
WOW! you completed the tree quickly, I've only just got my copy of the magazine but they do look tempting to stitch

Well done Ginnie, it looks great. I had the same problem with glue, so i stuck a small ribbon bow in the corner to hide it, worked a treat!
