As Queen would sing: I want to ride my bicycle, I want to ride it where I like. And if these papers by Millicent Venton are to suggest anything, that’s past the flower market, then a swan-filled lake, then onto a field of sunflowers. Perfect! Everything in this collection is just so pretty, from the palette to the illustrations – and the sentiments (all eight of them) are heavenly too. Time to set off!
Combine these papers with softly-coloured baker’s twine, coordinating satin ribbons and dainty flower buttons, just like Sarah Jackman Read. Other than that, the papers speak for themselves! Capture the theme with cards that tell a story, then freewheel onto Sarah’s beautiful wrapped wreath and handy gift bag.
Here’s some project inspiration…
Shadow Box Card
1. Trim three pieces of white card, 14.5cm square, then layer windmill paper on one of them and gingham print on another. Matt floral paper, 13.5cm square, onto orange card, then adhere to the final piece. Die cut a 10cm diameter circle through the floral paper and a 9cm circle through the gingham.
2. Snip four strips of white card to 4cm x 14.5cm, then score down at every centimetre and concertina fold. Attach double-sided tape down each side of the folded strips and secure two down the sides of the panel with the windmill paper. Fix the gingham on top, then cut out a windmill and add on the right-hand side.
3. Attach the other two strips down the sides of the gingham paper, then stick the floral panel on top. Layer gingham paper, 3cm x 14.5cm, onto orange card and adhere below the aperture. Trim a bicycle, butterfly and flowers, then fix with 3D foam pads. Attach a sentiment in the top-left corner with 3D foam pads. Add a mini bow and flower button at the top.
1. Trim white card to 16cm x 18cm. Score down from the long side at 4cm and 14cm. Matt gingham paper, 9cm x 15cm, onto peach card and adhere inside. Cut out a flower stall and fix on top with 3D foam pads.
2. Snip two panels of patchwork paper, 3cm x 15cm, layer onto yellow card, then adhere to the front panels. Attach a sentiment in the top-left corner and a chalkboard in the bottom-right corner with 3D foam pads.
3. Die cut a 5.5cm diameter circle from gingham paper, layer onto peach, then attach a circular sentiment on top with 3D foam pads. Add a mini bow and flower button to the top, then secure inside the greeting.
Trim strips of various papers, 1.5cm wide, then wrap around a small polystyrene wreath, adhering in place. Cut out two butterflies and flowers. Attach with 3D foam pads. Snip a large jug of blooms and fix on the right-hand side with 3D foam pads. Add a sentiment on top with 3D foam pads. Adhere a mini bow and flower button below.
Curved Gift Box
1. Use the template to draw, cut out, score and fold a gift box from white card. Trim two pieces of floral paper to 9cm square. Layer onto peach and fix to the back and front.
2. Snip two panels of contrasting floral paper, 4.5cm x 5cm, matt onto orange, then adhere to the sides. Trim two pieces of bicycle paper to 5.5cm x 9cm and secure to the front and back. Cut out a row of flowers and adhere to the front, across the bottom.
3. Fold the box together and fix in place on the sides and base with double-sided tape. Punch a hole in the top. Attach a sentiment to the front with 3D foam pads, then add a mini bow and flower button in the corner.
4. Die cut a 5.5cm diameter circle from flower paper, layer onto an orange circle, then stick a circular sentiment on top with 3D foam pads. Punch a hole through the top and thread with baker’s twine. Pass through the top of the box and knot to secure.
