4.  Trim a piece Dovecraft Back to Basics True Blue paper to 12.5cm by 8.4cm and stick to the front of the card with double sided tape.

5.  We have used a contrasting chevron patterned paper to create a small tag. Cut the paper 10.2cm by 3.7cm and cut in a fishtail design at one end. Wrap a piece of twine around the other end of the tag and make a bow before sticking the tag to the centre of the card with 3D foam pads.
