How To Make:

Let’s prep! It’s always easier to prepare all your crafty bits before assembling…

1. Take a piece of A4 white card and fold it in half.


2. Using double sided tape, seal 2 of the sides but leave one open to create a paper pocket.


3. Cut the Lemonade paper from the free download to an A5 size.


4. Cut a circle, roughly the width of an A5 sheet, out of the A4 Kraft card.


5. Using your We R Memory Keepers Rainbow ABC Punch Papers, take 1 sheet of the yellow and 1 sheet of orange and cut out 3 small lemon shapes from each.


6. Stick 1 of the orange lemon shapes behind 1 of the yellow lemon shape slightly off centre so the orange peaks through to create a shadow.


7. Repeat this process for the remaining lemon shapes.

8. Using your We R Memory Keepers Rainbow ABC Punch Papers, take 1 sheet of the green and die cut the leaf shape from the First Edition Flower Dies set 3 times.


9. Die cut the word “LEMONS” out of the Dovecraft Gold Glitter Card.


Let’s Assemble!

1. Stick the A5 lemonade paper to the A5 paper pocket using double sided tape.


2. Stick the kraft circle to the middle of the lemonade paper using double sided tape.


3. Stick the green leaves around the boarder of the kraft circle evenly spaced using double sided tape.


TRIMCRAFT TIP: Use mini foam squares at the tip of the leaves to create a 3D effect.

4. Stick the lemon shapes around the kraft circle at the base of the leaves you have stuck down.


5. Stick the word “LEMONS” to the middle of the kraft circle.


6. Write the words “When life gives you” above the word “LEMONS”


TRIMCRAFT TIP:  If you’re not confident writing on to the invite, use an alphabet stamp!

7. All that’s left to do now is print off our FREE Summer Garden Party invitation and fill it out with your information!
