Two each of 5-3/8″ x 2-7/8″
Eight each of 2-5/8″ x 2-5/8″ and 2-3/8″ x 2-3/8″
Adhere the large square pieces of paper to the large square pieces of card. Set them aside.
Take all the 2.75″ x 3.25″ and 2.5″ x 2.75″ pieces of white card and score each on their long side at 0.5″. Fold and burnish the score lines with a bone folder.

Adhere all the small square designer paper pieces to the card pieces. If your paper is directional, you can move this step to after you adhere the card pieces to the base.

Apply adhesive to the inside 0.5″ section of the card piece and adhere under the top left corner of the  5.5″ piece of card, on the left hand side.

Adhere the rest of the pieces as shown here.

Repeat for the 5″ x 5″ base piece using the picture below as a guide. Once all the small pieces have been adhered, apply adhesive to the back of the 5″ x 5″ piece and position in the centre of the 5.5″ x 5.5″ piece. Set this aside to work on the image.

Stamp Oddball Snow Queen onto white card, colour using your preferred medium, and then fussy cut around the outline.

Take both 3″ x 6″ pieces of card and score each at 0.25″ and 5.75″. Fold and crease the score lines then adhere the 0.25″ sections of each piece together to make a belly band.

Ensure the belly band is loose enough to slip over the card but also tight enough to stay in place.

Adhere the 5-3/8″ x 2-7/8″ paper pieces back and front

Create a winter scene on the 4.5″ panel

Adhere the panel to the belly band – ensuring to apply adhesive only where the panel meets the belly band.

Stamp the sentiment onto white card and cut out using a stitched die. Adhere Oddball Snow Queen and the sentiment to the panel.

Using cut outs from the designer papers decorate the inside, adding some card circles for personal messages.
