Dovecraft A4 Kraft Card Stock, Ribbon, Happy Birthday
Sentiment Clear Stamp
How to Make
Cut an A4 sheet of Dovecraft Kraft card stock
down to 26cm x 9.5cm. With your card placed horizontally on your table, score
vertical lines at 9cm, 18cm and 21cm.
Choose a paper design from from the free
download, cut two 9cm x 9cm pieces and one 9cm x 5cm piece. Add Dovecraft Perma
Fix tape to the back of all three pieces and adhere them to the inside sections
of your Kraft strip.
Next, cut a 9cm x 9cm piece and a 9cm x 5cm
piece of coordinating paper. Before you glue these down, cut two 18cm lengths
of Dovecraft ribbon and glue one to the front flap, on the left hand side, in
the middle. Glue the second length to the first fold on the right hand side, in
the middle. Adhere each piece of paper with Dovecraft Perma Fix tape to the two
Next, cut a 9cm x 4cm strip of Dovecraft Kraft
card. With your strip vertical, measure along the bottom edge and score a vertical line at 1cm, 3cm and 3cm.
Once done, fold the card in half. The middle section of your strip should be
sticking up, once ready, punch a hole in the centre of the middle section and then
one either side. These holes with hold your lolly pops.
TIP: We have used a Fiskars tool to punch
out the holes but you can use anything to punch these holes out, as long as the
holes are big enough to hold your lollies.
With your template sat vertically on your table,
stick your punched out strip horizontally, to the inside of your lolly pop
holder, in the centre. Do this by adhering the two outer edges of your punched
out strip with Dovecraft Perma Fix tape
to the lolly pop holder. Begin to fit your lolly pops in the holes.
TIP Before you adhere your strip, you could
place one of the lollies into the holder to measure where you want the holder
to be on your template.
One you have slotted in your lolly pops, your
holder should look like this:
Once you’re happy with your design, fold your
template in and tie your ribbon together
to create a bow.
Stamp your Dovecraft ‘Happy Birthday’ clear
sentiment stamp onto a piece of Dovecraft Kraft card. Cut out and adhere it
with 3D foam pads to the front of your lolly pop holder, in the middle.
This is a lovely design and will make a
lovely gift for a friend on their birthday.
Alternatively, you could create a ‘Thank You’ card by
layering your favourite designs from the free paper download onto a Dovecraft
kraft card blank. Pick a design to be your centre piece and add Simply Creative
gems and a stamped sentiment to your card to finish!
Or, you could add the perfect finishing touch to your gift
with a handmade tag using the free papers! Use the repeat heart patterned paper
in the download, and layer on another design with 3D foam pads to add
dimension! Finish with a stamped sentiment, punch a hole at the top and thread
through a length of coordinating ribbon.
