Cut Bank Roll (middle tier) to 1.5" x 4.5"
Cut Emerald City (bottom tier) to 1.5" x 5"
Score each of the strips of green paper every 3/8" and fold like an accordion, back and forth.
Cut a 1" circle out of Pale Yellow
Cut red to 10" x 7" and fold to make it 5" x 7"
Cut green tag according to template (see below).
Cut Quick Sand to 1" x 1.25"

Free Printable Merry Christmas Label

Print out the label template below. Use the blank one if you want to use the stamp, or use the one with Merry Christmas printed on it if you don't have the stamp. 

Step 2: Use the Sharp Crochet Hook to crochet edgings.

Do this by doing two single crochet stitches on each fold line, leaving a 3/16" space from edge of paper. Do this across paper. Turn and then make the shells by doing the following all in the next stitch: dc, ch 1, dc, ch1, dc, ch1, dc, ch 1, dc. There should be 5 dc with a ch in between each one. So do a shell, sk 1, sc, sk 1, shell. Do this all the way across. Tie off, cut, and tape end to back. Repeat for each paper.

For the star, mark 5 evenly spaced dots around Pale Yellow circle. Single crochet in each dot 3 times. Tie off, cut, and tape ends to back of circle.

Step 3: Add the finishing touches.

Stamp and emboss Merry Christmas to the white cardstock. Cut out and tape to green tag (see above template). Add pearl stickers to sides.

Ink the sides of Quick Sand paper with the cocoa chalk ink block.

Add the brad to the star and attach to top tier. Adhere the Christmas Tree layers in place using hot glue. 

You're done!

Happy Crocheting!
