I used a white gel pen to write the message on to this piece of cardstock before adhering onto the card base.
The Card base is just a large square, scored in half vertical and in half horizontally to make four square quarters. Then score one quarter in half diagonally and cut along the scoreline of the quarter next to the diagonally scored quarter (not the same quarter with the diagonal scoreline, but the next one over).
It's much easier to stick all the pieces onto the card base before assembling it together.
Here I have tucked excess twine into the two sides that create the front of the card.
The diagonal scoreline on the bottom of the card folds up so that the whole card will fold flat.
I Wrapped the present in brown paper and Kraft Rope Trim (with lots of knots), then slipped in a piece of cardstock with a jellyfish to match to card.

This card sat together better a different way than the previous card, so I just arranged the inserts to suit the card base.
