Then glue 1”x6½” white/black polka dot centered on the peach paper. Glue a 3½” square of black cardstock centered on a 4½” square Chalkboard teal patterned paper. Wrap 5/8” teal corners to overlap the corners of the cardstock and secure with foam tape as shown. Glue to the center on point and ¼” from the top. Foam tape Good Life Papier Tole, “SO MANY REASONS…” centered on the teal cardstock piece. Following the instructions on the Papier Tole, foam tape the remaining layers of the design.
