Punch border to bottom of decorative strip of paper, fold up 1”. Fold top down to fit just under the bottom fold like a matchbook. Make sure your folds are creased well using a folding bone.
Punch out crab, punch small heart, then adhere the small heart to crab’s large claw.
Adhere the square of coordinating decorate paper to the front fold, tucking just under the punched out border, this helps the decorative border pop! Glue crab to center of coordinating decorative paper.
