You will need..

-A blank card and envelope
-Decorative card
-Buttons (at least one large)
-Mini wired flower decoration
-German pins (normally used for flower arranging)
-Glue gun

 

 

Step 1..img_7264
Take the decorative card and cut out a large triangle to make the lady’s dress

 

 

 

 

 

Step 2..img_7266
Take two of the German pins and bend one of them almost straight to make the arms

 

 

 

 

 

Step 3..img_7269
Using the glue gun, stick the bent German pin about a third of the way down the card, slightly to the left. Take the unbent pin and stick further down the card, ensuring it stays central to the lady’s arms

 

 

 

Step 4.. img_7273
Stick the dress directly onto the arms and legs, gluing directly onto the raised parts of the pin. This will mean the dress is raised, giving  3D effect

 

 

 

 

Step 5..img_7274
Now stick a large button on to the top point of the dress, making sure the two holes are horizontal to resemble eyes

 

 

 

 

Step 6..img_7270
Take the flowers and trim the stalks so it is in proportion with the lady

 

 

 

 

 

Step 7..img_7276
Stick the bouquet onto the lady’s right hand

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 8..img_7277
Finally, add some buttons to the front of the envelope and write your message inside!
