instructions
  1. Wedding Card - 1 Glue decorative paper to a square card blank, then stick a square of contrasting paper in the centre. Cut a strip from co-ordinating paper, then snip a triangle from each end to create a banner.

    2 Using a felt tip pen, write a message on the banner, then embellish the strip with gems. Cut a white heart shape, then decorate with floral Using foam pads, attach the shape to the card.

    3 Stick miniature wooden pegs to the top of the heart, then clip the message to the card. Fix a button to the centre of a floral paper rosette, then attach it to the base of the card.

  2. Favour Boxes - 1 Using the template on our pattern pages, photocopy the box onto patterned paper. Cut out the shape and score the dotted lines. Fold tab A over, glue tab B, and join it to the opposite side.

    2 Using a short length of co-ordinating ribbon, make a loop. Feed this inside the box, through the hole in the top. Make sure the knot is bigger than the hole. To close the box, slot the open-ended part into the cut slit at the side of the container.

    3 Stick decorative paper to the face of the box. If you’re making several, vary with co-ordinating patterns. Glue a paper rosette, bow, or other embellishment to the top, then decorate with gems.

  3. Heart Decorations - 1 Using the heart template, transfer the design onto co-ordinating decorative papers. Cut the shape out with a craft knife.

    2 If the paper is too lightweight, glue the shapes to white stock paper. Buff the edges with a matching colour stamping ink, then hang the middle V over the rim of a wine glass.
