YOU WILL NEED
Papers, Japanese origami
Card: cream, blue, pink
Dies: circles, alphabet, nesting squares
Embellishments: brads, ribbon
Die-cutting machine
3D foam pads
METHOD:
1 Mount red origami paper onto a cream blank, 12.5cm square. Die cut a large decorative square from light blue card and letters to spell out ‘Birthday wishes’ from pink card. Fix the letters onto the bottom of the blue panel.

2 Cut four 4cm squares from pink origami paper, and four 5cm squares from red. Fold each square in half, keeping the pattern on the inside. Open the square out and fold in half corner to corner, keeping the pattern outermost. Repeat the process with alternating corners until each square has three crease lines.

3 Push the valley folds in and flatten to form a triangle. Fold an outer corner upwards, then tuck in. Do the same with the opposite corner until you have a triangle and a kite shape. Repeat the process for each piece.

4 Assemble the folded shapes into a rosette, alternating the colours and ensuring the kite shapes form the top layer. Fix a red brad to the centre and layer onto cream card with inverted corners. Mount towards the top of the blue panel, then secure to the greeting to finish.
