All the best

Stick a white doily onto a scal­loped square of pink card. Cut eight scal­loped fab­ric cir­cles. Ar­range around the out­side of a white scal­loped cir­cle to cre­ate a frame and se­cure on the re­verse. Add a sen­ti­ment and se­cure onto the doily with foam pads.

Birth­day wishes

Add a sen­ti­ment to a cir­cle of white card and layer onto a blue cir­cle. Die cut some fab­ric flow­ers, layer to­gether and top with but­tons. Add to the card, along with punched leaves.

Let’s cel­e­brate

Cut nar­row strips of fab­ric and snip the ends into a fish­tail. Stamp a sen­ti­ment on the top right cor­ner of a square of white card. Ar­range the fab­ric strips in a wo­ven pat­tern, as shown.

Think­ing of you

Stamp a sen­ti­ment onto a square of white card. Die cut but­ter­flies from six dif­fer­ent fab­rics and se­cure to the base with foam pads. Add pearls to the mid­dle of each one, to fin­ish.

New home

Sew three small squares for win­dows and an arched door onto a larger square of fab­ric, then stitch onto a square of white card. Cut a tri­an­gle for the roof and stitch in place. Add a stamped sen­ti­ment and layer onto a square card blank.

Spe­cial day

Fray the edges of a square of blue fab­ric and sew some stitches onto the bot­tom half for three bal­loon strings. At­tach the square to a white card blank. Die cut three bal­loons from pat­terned fab­ric, stamp a sen­ti­ment onto one and stick them onto the card front, as shown.

Best wishes

Die cut nine scal­loped fab­ric squares and stamp a sen­ti­ment onto one. Add them to the card base with foam pads. Dec­o­rate with punched or die-cut flow­ers, hearts, stars and but­ter­flies.

Just for you

Cover a square of card with fab­ric. Add a fab­ric strip down the cen­tre. Cut an­other square of fab­ric, con­certina fold into a fan shape, wrap a strip of fab­ric around the cen­tre and sew in place. Glue on top of the present and add a stamped tag.

You can use this method to cre­ate a sim­ple fab­ric flower, too!

In­stead of fray­ing, try us­ing pink­ing shears on your fab­ric to cre­ate a new look!

Use lace and rib­bons for a more del­i­cate, fem­i­nine ef­fect!
