I like the finished effect but I haven't had time to do anything further with it and incorporate it into a more layered piece.
The blue tag and sentiment were free with a craft magazine! All mounted onto red striped paper on a red metallic card blank.
Finally I made a birthday card today for my friend's teenage daughter. She likes baking so I chose a cupcake theme. The pocket on the card is made out of a 16cm square of double sided paper. Fold the square diagonally in half with the fold horizontally across the bottom. Then fold each point up to touch the opposite edge of the triangle so that the upper edge of the folded piece is horizontal. Then fold the upper flap down to make the pocket. I made a mini tag to go in the pocket and mounted the whole thing on foam pads on a polka dot covered card blank.
To make it open out a serviette and fold each corner neatly into the centre to make a smaller square. Do this 2 more times folding in to the centre on the same side as before. Then turn over and fold the corners to the centre a 4th time. The carefully pull the top flaps on the back round to the front, squashing the corner in with your thumb. Don't pull round fully as it tends to lose its shape. Then gently pull the next layer of flaps round to the front and finally fold the last layer of flaps round to form the outer row of petals/leaves. Be careful not to tear the paper on this single layer. Tease into shape and put on the centre of your poshest dinner plates to wow your guests!
