Make a Scottish Kilt Card

You will need:

Tartan paper
Blank Greeting Card (or piece of A4 card folded in half)
Brown paper
Stapler
Double sided tape

Instructions:

Cut two strips of tartan paper approximately 20cm by 10 cm.

Concertina fold each strip leaving a length of about 8cm unfolded on one strip (strip A) and 6cm unfolded on the second (strip B).

Kilt card 1

Take strip B and, with the unfolded area to the left, gather the folds and staple together.  Repeat with strip A, keeping the large unfolded area to the right.

Kilt card 2

Use a strip of doble sided tape at the top to attach strip B to the card.  Repeat with strip A, overlapping the unfolded areas.

Kilt card 3

Use double sided tape to stick on a strip of brown paper to cover the staples.

You can cut a 'sporran' from brown paper, write a greeting on the sporran and stick to the centre of the kilt.
