  1. Thank You Greeting - 1 Cover the front of a 15cm square blank with red card.

    2 Using a 14cm square of red card as a base, cut different patterned papers into triangle shapes to form a sunburst design then stick each to the card front.

    3 Cut out and reinforce the ‘Thank you’ sentiment by backing it with card. Stick to the centre of the blank with foam pads.

  2. Thinking Of You - 1 Cover a 15cm square blank with grey card. Cut a smaller square panel of white card to 14.5cm and fix a scallop-edged strip of pink card to the bottom. Cut a length of floral patterned paper and stick on top of the pink paper.

    2 Stamp a greeting at the top and affix the panel to the front of the card. Cut out three flowers from the paper sheet and three pot shapes from grey card.

    3 Glue them across the middle of the card and add a gem to the centre of each flower.

  3. Gift Bag - 1 Create the base by cutting a piece of pink card to 12cm x 16cm and score all sides at 2cm. Snip a fold at each corner to make flaps and glue to form a shallow box.

    2 Cut two pieces of patterned paper to 14cm x 21cm and glue the bottom edge around the front and sides of the box. Repeat on the back and add glue to the overlapping side seams. Stick a 2cm deep pink strip of card on the outside of the bag at the bottom.

    3 Make two 1.5cm x 18cm handles from pink card. Secure the ends to the front and back of the bag with decorative brads.

    4 Create a tag by cutting a 5cm circle topper with a punch or die. Back it with white card and tie to the handle with twine.
