How to Make

1. Print the Guitar template and enlarge to desired size. Use scissors to carefully cut out the template. Put to one side.

2. Use a craft knife and metal ruler to cut a rectangle of bark blue card. Make it 1 cm smaller than the dimensions of the blank card. Position this centrally on to the blank card and lightly mark the position in pencil. Glue the card in place, lining it up with the pencil markers. Gently erase the pencil markings.

3. Take a sheet of plain white paper and stick lengths of the red patterned Washi Tape to form a rectangle shape that is the height and width of the guitar outline. Take time to line up each strip of Washi Tape to ensure there are no gaps in-between each strip.

4. Flip over the sheet of white paper with the Washi Tape strips on it so that the reverse side is facing up. Take the guitar template and draw around the outside on to the reverse side of the stuck down Washi tape strips.

5. Use scissors to carefully cut out the guitar. Lay the guitar on to the front of the card and when you are happy with its position, glue it in place.

6. Add gem stickers for the guitar tuning pegs to add a bit of sparkle.
