    3 Cut apples from the apple pie design with a circle punch. Mount onto a slightly bigger green circle and again onto a red scalloped one. Add this to the centre of the card using sticky foam pads.

    4 Stamp the sentiment onto cream card and cut out with the word window punch. Stick to the bottom right corner. Fix the design onto a square blank.

  2. Good Luck Card - 1 Back numbers patterned paper, 13cm square, with grid paper, 14cm square, and stick onto a white blank. Work the notebook punch down the left side of green card, 9.5cm x 11cm.

    3 Cut kraft card, 5cm x 6.5cm, and ink the edges with brown. Glue lined paper to the centre and cut a round tab from green card. Secure on the top to create a mini clipboard. Add a silver brad.

    4 Stamp 'good luck' in red ink and glue on apples cut from the apple pie paper. Adhere the mini clipboard on the card, as shown, and add two mini paper clips to finish.

    2 Trim letters from patterned paper and arrange onto the lined design. Raise two of the letters up on 3-D foam pads, then wrap bakers
    twine around the design and tie in a knot. Fix to an A6 notebook to finish.

  4. Desk Tidy - 1 Create two boxes using the downloadable pattern; the large one in red and the smaller in green. Use the notebook punch to
    create a decorative edge along the top.

    2 The smaller box is decorated with four 6cm squares of apple pie paper and the big box uses four rectangles of the alphabet design, 6cm x 10.5cm.

    3 Wrap bakers twine around the big box, then secure the two boxes together. Stick a mini clipboard (see the good luck card for instructions), then stick to the front of the red box.

    4 Make a tiny ruler by inking kraft card, 2cm x 6.5cm, with brown, then adhering lined paper to the centre. Write in numbers and attach to the box with a mini bulldog clip.
