My favourite kit bits

“It was very thought-provoking to use the girlie elements”

“The gems are good to use for the centres of flowers and rosettes”

“The chipboard hearts were one of my favourite elements!”

I was delighted and thrilled but also a little apprehensive by the prospect of being chosen to be a Designer for the Day. I sat down with a notebook and pencil, set out the kit and came up with a myriad of ideas”

Take the maroon card blank from your kit and hold landscape-view

Measure and mark vertically along the card, at 2.5cm from the left and right edge

Open the card out flat and cut from these marks to overlap the spine of the card by 2.5cm

Score the aperture section at 2.5cm and 5cm from the front of the card, to create a mountain and valley fold

Manipulate the folds to create a stepper card. Mount the front panels of the card with zigzag patterned paper

Carefully snip a selection of dress-up motifs from the sheet, mounting bows and butterflies with foam pads
