1 A4 Sheet of 160gsm thin card - for template.

There is a video on the website which explains how to capture single images and paste them into word processing or graphics programmes. Click here
Using a sheet of Gentle Gloss photo paper capture and print out one of the smaller toppers (approx 9.5cms x 12cms), two of the mini-cards, and a section of the matching backing sheet. They should all fit on one A4 sheet. Paste the mini-card twice (optional - using the graphics/word processing programme flip one of the mini-cards to create a mirror image). (See picture).
Transfer the markings to a piece of Stardream card 11cms x 29.7cms. Score the red and blue lines.
Cut the green horizontal 3cms line, at both sides of the card.
Mountain fold the red scores lines and valley fold the blue lines by easing the folds into shape. (See picture)
Mount the topper on gold mirri card and fix to the centre section of the card.
Cut four strips of gold mirri card approximately 5.2cms x 1.2cms and fix to the sides of the "half-step".
If you want to keep the mini-cards closed, cut and notch in each side section (See picture)
Fold the mini-cards in half and stick to the top outer corners of the card. The mini-card on the right-hand side should open from left to right.
Decorate the remaining outer sections of the card using the backing sheet.
Add a sentiment. Messages can be written inside the mini-cards.
This card will fit in a 133 x 184mm i8-envelope.
