3 Cut out flowers from black and white floral paper. Use the fine pens to decorate the petals and add detail. Top the flowers with green buttons and attach to the wooden dowel with glue. Cut three holly leaves from paper and add detail with the black, red and white pens. Stick the holly behind the flowers.
1 Create a large red card blank. Fix black and white striped paper along the bottom and with a ruler add lines of colour. On black and white floral paper, cut around the flowers to give a shaped top, then above the stripes. Use a fine tip green and red pen to add colour, then top the flowers with buttons.
2 Print a message onto green paper, leaving a double space for a missing letter. Add a button in place of the letter and glue to the face of the card. Type a Christmas menu and glue to the inside of the card.
Colour a wooden wheels and heart blanks with red, white and black pens.
To make a stand, glue the point of each heart and fix in the centre of the wheel. Top with flowers cut from black and white floral paper. Add silver gems to the centre. Print out a name on green paper and glue behind the heart.
