So if you want to learn how to make this pretty card, here is a list of the required material-

 2 Paper strips of your colour choice(I took red)- 20"long and 2" wide (I used thin handmade paper)

A silver circular piece of paper - 2 and 3/4 inches in diameter
A white circular piece of paper - 5 and 1/4 inches in diameter

A small piece of green paper for the leaf
Gel pens
A pair of scissors
Green floral tape
Bamboo stick

Material required
 So to begin with,first take the two red strips and pleat them,which is like "fan fold" them as shown below.The paper will look like accordian folds.If you are not sure of this step,google search "fan folding a paper"

Do the same with the other strip of paper and lay both the strips as shown in the picture below.

Now glue the two pleated strips together to make a single long strip.

 Then, glue the two free ends to give it a round shape.

It will look something like this-

Then glue the silver circular piece of paper right in the center.

Then take the piece of bamboo stick and cover it with green floral tape,or for that matter even any green coloured paper strip/green ribbon will do.

Write your matter on the white circular piece of paper.
