Be inspired by traditional quilts to make this six-point star card

What you need...
  • Card, pink
  • Paper: spotty, pink; swirls, pink
  • Bonding material, iron-on
  • Button, antique-style, white
  • Fabric, scraps
  • Sewing materials
  • Adhesives
  • Cutter, rotary (optional)
  1. Transfer the template provided onto stiff card, it is only necessary to get one diamond shape, then cut it out. Choose a variety of co-ordinating fabrics
    and cut six small squares from them and iron bonding material onto the backs. Place the template onto the reverse of the fabric and draw around the
    shape. Using the rotary cutter, accurately trim the shape out. Complete all six in the same way.

  2. Cut pink co-ordinating fabric, 14cm square. Peel off the backing paper and iron one of the diamonds into place on the base material, then lay the next diamond down and iron as before. Build up the pattern until the star is complete. Using a contrasting thread, machine or hand-sew around each of the
    diamonds. Sew the button in the centre of the star.

  3. Stick the fabric to white card using double-sided tape, then trim to 10.5cm x 11.5cm. Trim dark pink card, 14cm x 30cm, and fold in half. Cut a piece of pink and white spotty paper, 12.5cm x 13.5cm, and stick to the front of the base card with 3-D pads. Finally, fix the fabric panel to the card with double-sided tape.
