Beach Ball Card

  1. Using a large circle nesting die, Place the die over the edge of a 6 x 6 card blank and hold into place with washi tape before cutting out.If you do not own a die cutting machine you can use something round like a saucer to get the same effect.
  2. Using the Dovecraft Bunting die, Cut out 8 flags using the larger sized one.
  3. Find the center of the card and glue the flags down next to each other. Leave a small gap between each flag so that the look roughly equal.
  4. Bunch out a small circle from patterned paper or add a button to the center
  5. Cut two sentiments out of craft foam, from different colors and layer them together so that the darker color shows underneath.
