Cut along the first full zigzag pattern edge of the top. Flip the papers over, and glue the smaller red dot strip on the top edge. Glue the bigger strip on the bottom edge of the cardstock, with the zigzag cut on the bottom.
  2. Cut the Happy Days green paper to fit inside the machine. Place it on the second biggest die (large flower) and the cutting plate with the cutting mat on top. Run it through the machine.
