Instructions

  1. With the fold at the left, trim the card to a 5” square. Cover the card front with green patterned paper, and then ink the edges brown.
  2. Glue blue rickrack across the top and bottom of the card front as shown.
  3. Use the template to trace a bracket frame A onto striped paper, a bracket frame B onto blue plaid paper, and a vintage sign B onto pink/white floral paper. Cut them out and ink the edges brown. Foam tape the labels layered together in a stack and glue centered to the card front.
  4. Add stickers as shown, except for the flower stickers.
  5. Paint the thread spools and buttons pink and let dry. Write or computer print “Thinking of you” onto green patterned paper. Trim so the words are centered on a 4” long strip, and the same width as the thread spools. Ink the edges brown.
  6. Wrap the ends of the paper around the spools so the green side is up and the words are across the center between the spools and glue in place.
  7. Add blue rick-rack around the paper on the spools. Glue overlapping the labels as shown.
  8. Finish the buttons with thin strips of green paper instead of thread. Zots™ buttons to card front as shown.
  9. Back flower stickers with pink or blue paper, trim edges and glue as shown. Zots™ ribbon as shown. Repeat the look on the inside with a decorated label and stickers.
