1 Create a blank from white card, 10.5cm x 14.5cm. Cover with patterned paper. Attach the letter ‘H’ onto the shaped-edge die, fix with masking tape onto purple card cut to 11cm x 15.5cm, then run through a die-cutting machine.

2 Repeat with each letter to spell out ‘Wish’, trimming each panel 2cm shorter than the one before it. Secure each panel onto the card using 3D foam pads.

3 Snip purple card to 2.5cm x 10.5cm and wrap ribbon around it. Secure it onto the left-hand side. Glue a ribbon bow and flower embellishments to the small piece of card, then add pins and sequins to finish.
