Cardmaking and Papercraft - - Knowhow Technique -

1 Trace the cherry tem­plates from p92 onto red pat­terned papers, cut out and attach to a 90mm square of white card. Trace the leaves onto green spotty pa­per and the stem onto brown pa­per, cut out and add to the square. Add dashed lines with red and green fine­line pens as shown.

2 Cover a 150mm square base card with green spotty pa­per. Cre­ate a frame by cut­ting a 121mm square aper­ture from a 145mm square of white card. Stamp a sen­ti­ment onto bot­tom of frame.

3 Use low-tack tape to attach iris fold­ing tem­plate to the front of the aper­ture. Cut and fold strips from four dif­fer­ent green pat­terned papers. Attach strips across re­verse of the aper­ture.

4 Attach the cherry panel to fill the cen­tre of the folded frame and ap­ply tape across the re­verse of the whole panel to flat­ten and se­cure. Add foam tape around the edge of the iris fold­ing panel and attach to the base.
