JS Jane Shasky, From the Heart of the Garden CD set.
I used a sentiment and decoupage sheet from the Inspirational section of CD1 and a backing paper from the Mixed Floral Section on CD2.
Print out a backing sheet, decoupage sheet and sentiment. It explains on the CD how to personalise a sentiment and import it as a single image into a word processing or graphics programme for re-sizing and printing.
Cut out the decoupage.
Mount the base topper for the decoupage onto a piece of 300gsm card measuring 16cms x 14cms.
If you are using a different topper you may need to change the dimensions of the aperture.
Using an 8 inch square scalloped card available from the website cut two pieces measuring 16.5cms x 20.3cms.
Measure, mark, score and cut the aperture out of the front of the card as shown.
Measure, mark and score the back of the card. Do not cut out the aperture.
Apply Foam tape or foam pads to the reverse of the card front around the edge of the aperture, ensuring that it does not overlap the score lines.
Fold the score lines.
Fix the decoupage topper inside the aperture and build the decoupage.
Cut a strip of backing paper approximately 1cm wide and decorate both scalloped edges of the card.
Attach the sentiment.
Cut an A4 sheet of JS Elegance 300gsm card to measure 28cms x 20cms.
Measure, mark and score the card as shown. Do not fold yet.
Cut away the four corners “A”.
Apply double sided tape to sections “D” (do not remove backing).
Cut a vertical line up to the horizontal score lines on corner tabs “B”.
Valley fold score lines, apply glue to underside of tabs “B” and fix in front of sections “C”.
Shows the drawer partly assembled.
Remove backing paper from the double sided tape on one of the “D” sections and stick onto section “C”.
Make a hole in the centre of the other “C” section, reinforce with a strip of card.
Cut a strip of backing paper to decorate the outside of the drawer. Fix to the drawer edge and make a hole to correspond with the hole in “C”.
Thread the tassel to the inside and secure (optional – use a matchstick to stop the tassel pulling out through the hole).
Remove the backing paper from section “D” and stick down to cover the reinforcing strip and tassel.
