How to… Fasten with a band
Using a simple paper wrap to keep your gatefold design closed adds extra interest for recipients
1 Start with a 13.5x26.4cm piece of white card then score and fold the two side panels at 6.6cm from each edge. Trim the top off the two side panels, so they are 10cm tall. 2 Die-cut the Floral Dance border into the top of the central panel. Create a curved section at the top of each side panel, from the folded edge to 7.5cm at the outer edge. 3 Cover all three inside panels with mint green gingham paper and the outer two panels with pink paper, leaving small white borders, and inking and stitching the edges. 4 Cut a 2x28cm strip of gingham paper, then fold and glue the ends to make a band, to fit around the card – join together two lengths of paper, if needed. Add a layered die-cut flower to the band. 5 Add a printed greeting inside a kraft card scalloped-rectangle frame and attach, as shown. Finish with pearls and butterflies.
