Follow our easy instructions to make a trio of birthday papercraft projects, including cards and a gift bag

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
