  1. HB2U - Make two white top-folding blanks, 10.5cm x 14.5cm. Use the template to create a pop-up on one, then stick both together. Create icing using the template and fix to the top of striped card. Attach five die-cut candles to the cake, securing on the reverse. Adhere to the pop-up section. Cut scallops along the bottom edge of multi-coloured ‘happy birthday’ card and along the top of turquoise spotty card. Cut scallops around a ‘let’s party!’ sentiment. Attach the pieces to the blank, as shown. Trim and matt ‘HB2U’ card to the front. Add gems to finish.

  2. Hello - Use the tiered pop-up template on our pattern pages to cut and score yellow card, 13.5cm x 20cm. Round the top corners, stick inside a white blank with matching corners. Fix patterned paper strips onto the three central rectangles. Add contrasting pieces down the centres on all sides. Make a blue and red bow and stick to the top present. Punch and adhere various circles inside. Create and secure a ‘party hardy’ sentiment to the upper right corner. Round a corner of multi-coloured striped and ‘hello’ card. Adhere to the front. Die-cut a cupcake and stick to the bottom. Embellish the inside and outside with gems.

  3. YAY! - Fix balloon card to the inside top of a blank and yellow spots to the bottom. Score at 3cm, 6cm, 9cm and 12cm on white, 9cm x 13cm. Fold and apply glue along the narrow section to form a square tube and attach to the inside. Fix three die-cut balloons to the back of a ‘surprise!’ sentiment and stick to the pop-up, adding a heart and gem to each. Apply a balloon sticker and gems to the yellow spot card. Matt ‘YAY’ balloon card onto lime attach to the front, then stick a gem-studded lime heart onto a balloon to finish.
