Add the ac­etate tab to the re­verse of the top edge of the panel. 2 Open the card blank and, with the fold ly­ing across the card, stick the panel to the in­side to cre­ate an ac­etate easel. At­tach 145mm of blue bor­der card to 150x150mm of gold Mirri card and add this panel to the base.

Cut two 25x150mm pieces from roses bor­der card and at­tach to the top and the bot­tom of the ac­etate us­ing dou­ble-sided tape, then add two strips of foiled bor­der.

Cover the front and in­side of the base with gold Mirri card, again shap­ing the cor­ners.

Cut two pieces of the ging­ham and bor­der pa­per, slightly smaller than the Mirri card, and round the cor­ners.

Add two pieces of pink rib­bon to the larger piece of pa­per and one piece of rib­bon to the smaller piece of pa­per. Layer each piece of pa­per onto the base, se­cur­ing the ends.

At­tach three top­pers, as shown, us­ing sticky fix­ers. Next add the large pen­nant and then the smaller one us­ing sticky fix­ers. Add a small bow and gems, as shown, to fin­ish.

Love you

1 Cut the ra­di­ant roses card to 270mm and score it at 90mm and 180mm. Make a mark 150mm from the bot­tom edge and cut a straight line to the top of the 180mm core line, trim­ming away the top sec­tion. Fold the card from left to right to cre­ate a tri­fold card, scor­ing the edges. 2 At­tach the three heart top­pers us­ing sticky fix­ers, as shown. Cut slits into the top­per from the ra­di­ant roses sheet. Thread rib­bon through the slits and wrap it around the last panel, se­cur­ing at the back.

Friends for­ever

1 Take a 140x210mm piece of white card and neatly score across the width at 70mm. 2 Mark the top edge at 70x140mm. From the top of the card, score then care­fully cut down to the cen­tral score line to cre­ate three squares. 3 Work­ing from the right-hand side of the card, score the first square from the top left cor­ner down to the cen­tre score line. On the mid­dle square, score across at 30mm. On the right-hand square, score from the top right cor­ner down to the cen­tre score line. This will cre­ate three easels.

Layer 210x70mm of gold Mirri card to the base. Add a smaller layer of the rose bor­der card­stock, cut­ting it from the bor­der end.

At­tach mirri card and speck­led pa­per to the stand-up sec­tions of the easels. Add a top­per to each, mak­ing sure they face the right way once stood in po­si­tion.

At­tach three small top­pers across the base to hold the easels in po­si­tion. Add gems to fin­ish.

With love & best wishes

1 Layer 180mm square of gold Mirri card to base. Fussy cut the flo­ral cor­ners from the cor­ners and dots card. Trim the polka dot sec­tion so it is slightly smaller than the Mirri card and at­tach (it won’t cover the en­tire card at this point). 2 Add the two flo­ral cor­ners, us­ing sticky fix­ers for the bot­tom one. Add the main top­per in place, as shown. Add the sen­ti­ment, us­ing a sticky fixer in the cen­tre and glue at the sides so it is bowed. Add gems as shown.

Flo­ral gift bag

Cut a 200x260mm piece of pink rose pa­per, mak­ing sure it in­cludes the rose cor­ner. Score it at 50mm in­ter­vals down the length and across at 25mm (along the bot­tom). At­tach 25x254mm of pink rose pa­per to the top edge.

Score down the cen­tre of each 50mm sec­tion, stop­ping 40mm from the bot­tom score. Punch holes along the top.

At the base, cut the score lines up to the 25mm line and trim each sec­tion. Cut off the bot­tom of the nar­row tab. Fold in­wards along the score lines and at­tach the tab in place.

Cut a pen­tagon 75mm across with each edge mea­sur­ing 50mm. Add to the base of the bag. Add a sec­ond pen­tagon to strengthen the in­side of the bag. Fin­ish with or­ganza rib­bon and a tag.
