- Use the square border paper for the background, with the border at
the bottom. Mat the photos onto the red textured paper and trim the
borders to 3/16”. Ink the edges with black. Glue to the page using
mounting tabs as shown.
- Cut out the tags and ink the edges with black. Add journaling with
a black pen. Secure the tags in the top left corner of the page. Cut
a piece of red grosgrain ribbon and tie it into a shoestring bow, then
attach to the top of the tags using a Glue Dot™.
- Trim the orange textured paper to 8 1/2”x12” to fit in
the printer. Print the journaling onto the paper, leaving room to add
ribbon-style word fragments. Cut out the ribbon-style word fragments
and ink the edges with black. Add the word fragments to the journaling
using foam mounting tape. Trim the journaling to fit on the page and
ink the edges with black. Glue to the page as shown.
- Cut out the square present artwork and ink the edges with black. Using
foam mounting tape, attach the artwork vertically down the right side
of the journaling.
- Cut out the alphabet tiles and ink the edges with black. Using foam
mounting tape, secure the alphabet tiles onto the bottom of the page,
placing one letter in each tile in the border. Use a black pen to add
pen work to the squares on the border. Cut five strips of red grosgrain
ribbon and tie each into a knot. Using Glue Dots™, attach one
knotted ribbon to the top of each of the squares with penwork on it.
A Tip From Paris:
Take advantage of patterned paper! This background paper has a square
border at the bottom, so I altered the colored squares with penwork and
ribbons, turning the squares into little birthday packages. I added black
ink to the edges of the photo mats, journaling and artwork to really make
them pop from the multi-colored background.
