Follow our easy instructions to make a trio of birthday papercraft projects, including cards and a gift bag
Best Wishes Greeting - 1 Create an 11.5cm x 14.5cm tent-fold blank. Cut an 11cm x 14cm piece of red background paper and put aside.
2 Trim 4cm x 12.5cm strips of paper from the blue and yellow floral papers. Clip a fishtail shape in the bottom of each and mount onto white card.
3 Cut a 3.5cm x 13cm piece of the white floral paper and cut one end into a fishtail, mounting onto white card as before. Glue each banner onto the red panel.
4 Trim an 11cm length of white lace and glue across the card, securing on the reverse. Die cut a round-edged stitched rectangle from more red paper. Mount onto white card and round the corners with a punch, then attach to the card front with 3D foam pads.
5 Die cut ‘Best wishes’ from white card and glue onto the rectangle. Matt the sentiment panel onto the banners and mount the entire panel onto the blank.
Pretty Butterfly Card - 1 Create a 12.5cm square top-fold blank. Cut a 12cm square of yellow spotty paper and glue onto the card. Mount a 10cm square of blue floral paper onto white card and adhere on top.
2 Cut a 3cm x 10cm strip of red backing paper and glue across the lower section of the card. Die cut a butterfly from red paper and white card, layer together, bend the wings up and glue onto the card front.
3 Die-cut ‘Hello’ from white card and attach to the red strip. Add three blue brads beside it with 3-D foam pads to finish.
Gift Bag - 1 Cut a 12.5cm x 16.5cm piece of red patterned paper. Matt a 10.5cm x 15cm panel of yellow floral paper onto white card and glue onto the red. Attach the panel to the front of the gift bag.
2 Die cut a stitched scallop-edged circle from white card and mount onto a white paper doily. Die-cut ‘Happy birthday’ from blue card and glue onto the circle.
3 Use the Dainty Bow die to cut from red paper. Assemble with glue and wrap a 1cm wide strip of blue floral paper to secure the middle, then glue it onto the white circle. Finish by attaching the circle topper to the front of the bag.
