How to Make

1.  Take a piece of white card stock and cut a triangle to fit diagonally across half of the 6” x 6” card blank.

2.  Cut the green floral paper into a 14.8cm square and stick to the centre of the card blank, leaving a small border around the edges.

3.  Cut a piece of the red gingham paper to cover the card triangle, leaving a 0.2cm space allowance around the edges of card to create a small border. Stick onto the card triangle and then add to the bottom left of the card, leaving an opening to put the tag in at the top.

4.  Cut a pink doily in half and add to the top of the triangle. We have then added more texture to the card by adding a 21.3cm piece of pink polka dot ribbon at the top of the triangle. We decorated the card by gluing two pink and one blue plastic heart shaped button to the top left of the ribbon.

5.  To make a tag, cut a piece of white cardstock to 12.5cm x 8cm and cut the corners off one end to create a tag design. With the green patterned paper, cut to 11.9cm x 7.5cm, again cutting a tag design on one side. Stick to the centre of the white card tag to create a small border around the edge.

6.  Stamp the ‘You are lovely’ sentiment onto another piece of red gingham paper and layer onto a 4.7cm x 4cm piece of white cardstock and then stick to the centre of the tag. Stamp the flower stamp onto the red and blue polka dot paper and cut to size. Add to the top right corner of stamp using Dovecraft foam squares.

7.  Stamp the flower stamp onto the blue floral and patchwork flower paper. Once dry, cut the two flowers to size and add one above the sentiment stamp with foam squares layered on top of each other and then add the other bottom of the stamp die next to the kraft card.

4.  Stamp 5 flowers onto three different Dovecraft Serendipity papers and cut to size. Stick two flowers onto the board using double sided tape and add the remaining flowers doing Dovecraft foam squares. To embellish the flowers, we have glued a button to the centre of each stamp.

5.  We have then created a pen holder by cutting a piece of red gingham paper to 8cm x 3.7cm and created a loop by joining the ends together. Stick to the back of the greyboard at the bottom making sure only the loop is visible.

6.  Punch two holes at the top of the grey board and feed the blue and pink ribbon through the holes and knot both ends so you can hang your notice board.
