1 Take a 15cm square white tent-fold blank and cover the front with pale pink paper. Stick a 14cm square of blue star paper on top, then add a paper tag in the top-right corner. Adhere three strips of gold washi tape around the centre of the card.
2 Cut a 16cm square of pale blue star paper and mark the centre on the wrong side. Fold each corner to the centre and crease. Fold the corners back on themselves, crease, then attach to the card front.
3 Glue striped paper inside the box, then add triangles of dark blue star paper to each corner along with a brad. Adhere a ‘Count the stars’ sentiment inside the box with 3D foam pads. Add a die-cut shooting star above it, then decorate the bottom-right corner with star stickers.
