How to Make

1.  Print your free template and use the measurements to draw out the correct shape onto an A4 sheet of Dovecraft white card. Alternatively, you can cut out the template and draw around it onto a sheet of card although this will be much smaller than shown in the pictures in this tutorial.

2.  Measure and score the lines that are indicated on your template.

3.   Next, fold the card into shape and take the measurements of the front of the card and cut a piece of Santoro Mirabelle paper from the 12x12 paper pad to fit. Adhere with Dovecraft Perma Fix Tape and trim around the edges if needed.

4.  Cut a coordinating piece of Santoro Mirabelle paper down to 9cmx 12cm and adhere it with Dovecraft Perma Fix tape to the front of your card. Cut off any excess paper along the edge.

5.  Pick a scene from the Santoro Mirabelle Decoupage pad and put it together using 3D foam pads. Take one of the Santoro Mirabelle glitter frame stickers and cut it in half and stick each piece to the centre of your card, ensuring to space each piece out.

6.  Adhere your Santoro Mirabelle Decoupage scene to the centre of your card, in between your glitter stickers. To add interest, you could add extra decoupage flowers from your pad.

7.  Cut a length of Santoro Mirabelle ribbon to fit along the bottom of the card, stick it down with Dovecraft Perma Fix tape and cut off any excess from the edges. Take the ‘Just for you’ sentiment from the Santoro Mirabelle Decoupage pad and add it to the bottom right corner of your card with 3D foam pads.

8.  Add three Santoro Mirabelle glitter dots in a vertical line on the left hand side of the decoupage image to finish.

This card shape can be adapted for different occasions, simply change your papercraft collection to decorate with and a way you go!
