Stitched Circles

How to:
Stamp Mini Oddball and His Frogs onto white card. Colour, then fussy cut around the outline. 

Use a craft knife to cut away the card between the gift and boy, and between the legs. 
Set the image aside. 

Take the card base and score on the long side at 1.75", 5.5" and 9.75"

Fold in half at the 5.5" mark, burnish well with a bone folder. 

Fold back the 1.75" section, and then the 1.25" section. 

Take the paper layers and adhere to both sides of the 1.75", 1.25", and 3.75" panels. 

Adhere the largest paper layer to the inside of the card on the 4.25" panel. 

Create a pocket for a gift card, and adhere the 2.75" x 3" card panel for a sentiment or handwritten message above it. 

Take the piece of card for the belly band and lay it, centered, across the card. 

Fold back each side loosely so that the band can move freely up and down. 

Remove the band and crease the fold lines with a bone folder. 

Apply double sided tape to the ends, as shown. Then fold in to secure the ends.  

Try the band for size, then adhere the paper layers. 

Adhere the paper circle to the card circle, then adhere them to the belly band, ensuring glue is applied only where the circle meets the belly band. 

Decorate the circle panel, then adhere Mini Oddball and His Frogs using foam tape/dots. 

Add the Celebrate sentiment above the image.
