Mountain and valley folds?

Thought I managed to escape the bout of winter colds and flu doing the rounds but oh no!! I feel terrible this morning. I could feel it creeping up on me last night until I could just about breathe!
After having such a good day yesterday I now feel awful!

Most of my do it yourself and craft projects are self taught. Some with success others need a little more practice. This year I've challenged myself to make my own Christmas cards. I've never really done the paper crafting/scrapbooking thing until yesterday. Went on a day course, learnt a lot of tips about using paper in your crafts and made this ...

It's such a cute little tin that I covered with paper and a few other bits and bobs and then made the matching gift card (that's where I learnt about mountain and valley folds - who knew!) The tin will be great for adding a little present or money.
Was hoping to start the Christmas cards today but feel awful so off to get a Lemsip instead!

What a wonderful work Cara! Both the tin and the card look so cute!
Sorry you got the flu, hope you get better soon!
