Arranging the Layers
Select all the layers and ungroup them.
Select the layers containing the score lines and on the upper-left menu, select score.
Select every piece together with its corresponding score lines and attach them.
Repeat this for every 2 layers (score + basic cut) that must be together.
Select the greeting messages you want to print and place them over the white jar pieces. Remove the other messages.
Select the layers containing the messages and on the upper-left menu select ‘Pen.’
Select one of the white jar pieces and its message and attach them. Repeat this step for the other white piece and message.
Press the ‘Make it’ button and start cutting.
Assembling the card
In this diagram, we have assigned a reference number to each piece so you can easily refer to them in this tutorial.
Glue the pieces #4A and #4B together, then glue #5A and #5B.
Fold piece #6 so the score lines end up facing the outside, except the last two faces that must be folded in an opposite manner so that the score lines end up on the inside of the folded faces.
Then, fold the flaps and put two-sided tape on them.
Put the two faces together to form a little pocket.
Glue the pieces #3A and #3B together. This helps the branches remain rigid and prevents them from bending when the card stands up.
Glue the pieces #2A and #2B together, and then the pieces #1A and #1B together, and fold the side flaps.
Put adhesive tape on the flaps of piece #3A. Attach piece #3A onto piece #6 as shown in the image.
Then put adhesive tape and attach the pieces #1A and #2A to piece #6 as shown in the above images.
Put adhesive tape on the side flaps of piece #6 and remove the vinyl protector from all the pieces of tape.
Connect the flaps of pieces #1A, #2A, and #3A on the side of piece #6, following the inverse order of how the pieces were put together on the other side.
Then, attach the flap of the blue piece to close it.
Apply glue and connect the pieces #4A and #5A to piece #6.
With the help of modeling tools, form the petals and connect the different pieces as shown in the pictures.
Attach the flowers to the green pieces (the stems).
Assemble the different pieces of the card where you can write your personalized message.
Put it in the pocket that’s in the back.
Fold the different parts of the card cover. Put adhesive tape on the borders of the pocket and put them together.
Apply glue and connect the white piece (this is optional, only use this piece if you want to write a longer message).
Decorate it using some leaves and a flower.
Fold and connect piece #7.
Glue piece #8 to number #7, and decorate it with some leaves and a flower.
That’s it. Fold your 3D card and insert it in the pocket. Fold the card cover and insert the fastener piece.
