Use your corner rounder on the edge of the card as well as on 1 corner of the 2 yellow rectangles. Adhere the yellow rectangles to the card base, matching up the corners of the yellow rectangle that are corner rounded. Adhere the 2 1/2″ x 5″ blue rectangles just below and above the yellow rectangles, respectively.
To make the candles, put adhesive on one edge of the right side(the side, if your paper is double sided like mine, you want to be showing when you are done) of the paper. Roll your rectangle up into a circle, keeping the right side out. Start with the side with adhesive and roll toward the non adhesive side. Press lightly so as to not distort the shape too much from a circle.
Adhere the candles to the card by putting adhesive on the card and attaching the candle to it.
Put foam squares on the flames and add them to card above the candles. Add the sticker to the banner and the banner on top of the candles. Put the adhesive on the back of the banner but not on the whole back as the whole thing won’t be glued down. If you do the whole thing you will have extra adhesive that will make the banner stick where you don’t want it to.
Enjoy choosing to whom you will give your beautiful card!
