  1. Cut a 2 ½" strip of red checked paper and ink the edges. Glue to the left edge of the background page.
  2. Mat photos with ivory cardstock and then with wider mats of red and green checked papers. Ink the edges and glue to the background pages, as shown.
  3. Back stickers with striped, red and green checked and white cardstock for the candy canes. Glue the stickers into place, add the smaller ones to the tags and then to the border on the left page.
