Christmas Present Page

I just LOVE the "I Wish" Simply Scrappin' Kit and made this cute present page using a little bit of the kit - Real Red 12x12 textured cardstock, some of the cute die-cut stickers, Patterned Paper, and Whisper White textured cardstock. I added Chocolate Chip 5/8" grossgrain ribbon to "tie" my page together (heehee). The measurements for the slits are as follows:

1. Starting 3/8" in from the left top corner, make a 5/8" slit, then make one 2" from that slit, then 1", then 2", alternating until you end up near the upper left corner.
2. Repeat this exact pattern on the bottom of the page, from left to right.
3. For the sides, start 1" below the bottom of the top left 5/8" slit and 3/8" in from the left of the page and cut a horizontal 5/8" slit, cut another one parallel to this 2" down, then 1", and repeating until you reach the bottom of the page.
4. Do this on both sides. Thread ribbon through, cutting 3 pieces for sides and 2 longer pieces for top section so that you can make a bow.

And don't forget the Christmas Card contest!
