  1. Trace 9”x11 1/4” Easy Vintage Labels template 10” from left edge of Pretty Little Posies tan/orange floral paper and mat with yellow cardstock, leaving 1/8” border. Glue 7/8” from Pretty Little Posies red tapestry paper. Trace 5”x6 1/2” Easy Vintage Labels Template onto each end of 4 3/4”x12” Pretty Little Posies aqua floral paper. Secure a pink Pretty Posies Embellies brad at the point on each end and glue border 1 5/8” from the left side of the page.
  2. Ink the edges of 5 1/2”x8 1/2” Pretty Little Posies tan check paper and secure the Pretty Posies Embellies™ mini brads to each corner. Mat 4”x6” photo with lime green cardstock and glue to the center of the Pretty Little Posies check paper.

  4. Glue the Pretty Posies Die-Cuts banner across the top of the photo, with the ends 1” from the top of the page. Use 1/4” wide blue sheer Pretty Posies ribbon to make 2 bows and Zot™ to the ends of the banner.
