1 Score a 150x175mm piece of heavyweight acetate at 25mm. Attach textured paper to a 150x150mm piece of gold Mirri card. 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.
Add the topper to the centre, then the outer frame and the sentiment using sticky fixers. Attach a stopper for the easel using another sentiment and sticky fixers. Add gems to finish.
Cut 50mm from front of base card and round the corners using a punch.
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.
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. Add the topper, as shown, using sticky fixers. 3 To finish, add a ribbon bow and a sentiment, as shown, using sticky fixers.

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.
