LeNae's Tip: Adding layers of color behind the Swirls, Flourishes & Borders Dazzles™ is easier than it may appear. Place pieces of patterned paper behind areas of a Flourish and use small scissors to cut just under the sticker edge. Notice that only areas with smooth and rounded outer edges are used for various purposes on this page.

  1. Cut a 2 1/2"x12" strip of floral paper and glue to the left of the purple swirl paper. Mat a 5"x7" photo with dark red paper and black cardstock, leaving 1/8" wide borders. Glue to the right of the floral strip edge. Line 2 corner pieces of Dazzles™ with lavender paper and glue to the right corners of the photo.
  2. Place two 6" lengths of border Dazzles™ along the edge of dark red paper. Cut out around the edges and glue the border to the right edge of the floral strip, covering the left edge of the photo.
  3. Punch a 3" oval from dark red paper and a 3 1/2" oval from black. Apply ink to the edges of the dark red oval. Foam tape the smaller oval to the center of the large oval. Line a medium size Flourish Dazzle™ with lavender paper and glue to the center of the dark red oval. Glue the ovals to the upper left corner of the photo.
  4. Cut the journaling into thin strips and ink the edges black. Glue to the lower right corner of the photo. Place small "innie" pieces as bullet points on each strip. Place large and small Dazzles™ swirls above and below the journaling.
