Step by Step

Lots of Layering

  • 3 sheets cardstock
  • 4 patterned papers (3 scraps are ok)
  • 2 photo corners or make them from scraps of pp
  • 1 paper flower and 1 die cut flower
  • 4 buttons
  • chipboard letters or thickers
  • brackets (hand cut, die cut, chipboard, etc.)
  • 1 journal spot
  • small piece of ribbon
  • 2" square punch
  • stapler
Step 1: Use one 12x12 piece of patterned paper for your background but punch a 2"square from the middle first by folding it in half to save for later. Layer a 10.5" square piece of cardstock to the middle of the patterned paper then another 10" square piece of cardstock on top of that.

Step 2: Mat 2 4x6 photos onto two cardstock mats 4.5 x 6.5. Adhere them near the top of the
10" square. Punch 3 more 2" squares from patterned paper and adhere those in a row under the photos.

Step 3: Add flower to bottom left hand corner of left photo. Adhere bracket over top and one overlapping the bottom of the right photo. Use chipboard or thickers to add title in between. Add a button for the flower center. Glue photo corners (use premade ones or make your own from patterned paper) to the top corners of the cardstock mats. Staple a piece of ribbon to a journaling card and tuck under top of right photo. Adhere die cut flower and 3 buttons to bottom right corner of cardstock mat overlapping the bracket. And your done!
