  2. Ink the edges of a 5”x2 1/4” Simply Susan green paper, mat on white cardstock with a 1/16” border on the long edges and glue 2” from the top edge. Place Card Hardware chain border Dazzles™ on the center of the strip.
  3. Ink the edges of a 2 1/8”x4 1/2” Simply Susan gray paper and mat on Simply Susan dark gray paper, then on white with 1/16” borders. Place the hat, glasses, moustache and tie Dazzles™ as shown. Add Card Hardware Dazzles™ screw tops at the corners. Foam tape the piece 1/4” from the right side and 1/2" from the top.
  4. Place “DADS ARE THE” Dazzles™ on the green strip, as shown. Place “Hipsters” Dazzles™ as shown. Place the “ORIGINAL” arrow Dazzles™ on white cardstock then trim next to the Dazzles™ edge and foam tape in place, as shown.
