Fold & score the A5- white card in half, in the portrait position fold the right side open edge back to the left side centre fold, score again to give a crisp fold.

Die cut the following pieces  Crafts4U Die Flutterby & the smaller stems from the Crafts4U Die Lavender Stems  on a piece of the Crafts4U A5 Glitter White & the Crafts4U Die Leafy Branch from a left over piece of the green side of the Kaisercraft Fairy Garden Collection - Fluttering & cut in to four pieces.
Attach the panels to the card & band as shown in the picture, adhere the edge of the Flutterby die cut  to the left panel, from the Kaisercraft Fairy Garden - Sticker Sheet place the narrow pink border along the center of the band creasing the folds as you go & trim off excess.
Turn the band over & place some double sided tape on either end approx 5cm in length & attach 2cm up from the bottom of the card.

From the Collectables Fairy Garden Pkt attach the butterfly border strip to the front of the band, adhere the three Lavender Stems & Leafy Branch pieces to the front panel.
