6.  Die cut the bow tie design from the First Edition Clothing dies set 6 times on different sheets of Happy Days paper. Also die cut a selection of coordinating stars using the Dovecraft Star die set.

7.  Thread a needle with a length of Dovecraft Twine, ensuring to add a knot to the end. From the inside of your card, pierce a hole and pull the twine through.

8.  Cut the twine to 8.5cm and adhere 3 bow tie designs down the length of twine. Place one more on the top of each to make it more secure. Stick your stars down on the right corner of the right with 3D foam pads.
