Ink pads: black, brown, green

1. Take 15cm x 21cm of blue card, draw around the circle template in the centre and carefully cut out. Repeat with the aqua and lilac card blanks, ensuring the circle apertures line up.

2. Score each at 1cm, 2cm and 3cm in on both sides and concertina the folds. Start with the lilac card and attach flowers to the edge of the aperture so that they overlap the cut-out area.

3. Lay the pale aqua card on top and glue more flowers and the smaller bird to build the scene. Finish with the pale blue card, adding the large bird, flowers and butterflies. Stick each of the card layers together.

4. Trim a 15cm x 17cm panel of green card to a 15cm square and fix to the back of the tunnel card. Add a butterfly to the front with 3D foam pads. Stamp the ‘Thinking of you’ sentiment in black ink onto lilac, cut out and glue to the top-left.
