How to make this card and tag

Cardmaking and Papercraft - - Knowhow Technique -

1 Trace the pineap­ple tem­plate from p91 onto the re­verse of a 95x140mm white card and cut out. Trace leaves onto green pat­terned papers, cut out and attach to front. Stamp a sen­ti­ment and add orange dashed lines.

2 Use low-tack tape to attach the tem­plate to the front of the aper­ture. Score and fold six 20mm-wide strips from five dif­fer­ent yel­low and orange pat­terned papers at 5mm.

4 Add folded strips in nu­mer­i­cal or­der, re­peat­ing a se­quence of pat­terned papers. Trim strips to fit as you go to re­duce the bulk of the lay­ers. Once com­plete, add more tape across the whole area to flat­ten and se­cure.

5 Cover a 110x150mm base with striped pa­per. Layer a 20x10mm piece of yel­low spotty pa­per onto green pat­terned pa­per and add to base. Add foam tape around edge of the iris fold­ing panel and attach to base.

3 Cut a folded strip to a length to fit sec­tion marked ‘1’. Lay the strip face down with folded edge on the line and add small pieces of tape to se­cure in place. Re­peat with a dif­fer­ent pat­terned strip for sec­tion ‘2’.

6 For tag, trace top of pineap­ple tem­plate onto 90x140mm tag and cut out. Add dashed lines, leaves, lay­ered bor­der and sen­ti­ment. Attach folded strips be­hind aper­ture. Layer tag onto pa­per; add rib­bon. Se­cure with brad.
