How to make the Lots of Happy Kit Hexagon card stand up...

I have seen lots and lots of comments about the hexagon shaped card in the Lots of Happy Kit card not being able to made so it stands up...

So I thought I would quickly share that it can... and how it can!

The instructions with the card show it as a non-standing version...
So you would colour the panel and assemble it like so...
So just ignore that!!

You want to do this instead... as the centre all gets covered up in any case...
Or more accurately... I would assemble it like this! So then you know it is going to stand up when you finish! So this would be the photo to pin!
Then you can add the other parts... The gold foil banner and ribbons...
The stamped panel...
And finishing off with the little die cut flowers... although I decided  not to hide mine under the stamped panel like the original...
And there you have it... one hexagon card that can stand up... 
Isn't it pretty! And a beautiful envelope for it too...
Beautiful card kit... has to be the best one yet!  First kit refill I have ever bought! So more on this kit another day... as there is plenty you can do to get creative with the base kit...
And I LOVE the box it comes in... reckon my Stamparatus will look fabulous in there! 

But in the meantime... here are all the contents... to make 20 cards... 4 each of 5 designs... I would just recommend adding (or having on hand) a Blender Pen... Paper Snips ( to cut the ribbon) , Tear n Tape and (optionally) Tombow adhesive...
And the lovely stamps... some lovely sentiments in here... and more on the one I won't use as is another day...
Love it all... Just £31.50 for the full kit... and only £19 for the 20 card refill! Bargain... and wouldn't it make a lovely gift.... And ooh... buy both for £50.50... 40 cards to make.... and you get a Sale A Bration promotional item for free too!

And oh a video for you too... just click on the pic... but ignore the assembly orientation of the hexagon card... unless you don't want it too stand up...
