You will need:

Cutting mat

A sharp knife

Appropriate paper/card (the thicker it is, the longer it will take)

Pencil and paper



Draw out your graphic making sure that everything touches something else, the more detail and connections you add, the better the card will stay together, but the longer it will take to cut!

Copy the outlines of the graphic across to the card surface.

Carefully take time to cut away the negative space on your design.

Mount onto an inner card.

Give to your loved one!
