Back these Dazzles with ivory marble paper: large and small birdhouses with posts, large and small flying birds, large seated bird, flying butterfly, and 2 flowers with stems. Chalk the paper backed Dazzles as shown and trim around edges.
- Cut out two yellow texture tags (cutting 3/4" off one end of the rounded ends tag) and ink edges. Cut out one large burlap tag and use as a template to trace onto tan/ivory squares paper. Cut out, ink edges and mat on brown glimmer paper with 1/16" border. Place "Home Tweet Home" on tags. Glue right ends together at upper right corner of card, and foam tape other ends. Place flower/leaf motif Dazzles on tag ends and small flowers on tags. Foam tape birds, butterfly and flowers as shown. Place other butterfly and heart Dazzles on card.
