  1. Place a sheet of striped paper with the stripes running vertically. Glue a 3 1/2"x12" strip of aqua texture paper even with the left edge of the striped paper. Glue a 1/4"-wide strip of black cardstock even with the right edge of the aqua paper.
  2. Cut a 3 1/2" square of aqua texture paper, then cut the square in half diagonally to create two triangles. Glue one triangle to the bottom right corner of the striped paper. Glue a 1/4"-wide strip of black cardstock to the long edge of the triangle. Ink the edges of the page black.
  3. Glue a 9 1/4" square of lime texture paper centered on the page. Mat three photos (one 3 3/4" square, one 3 3/4"x5 1/4" and one 4 3/4"x7") on black cardstock and trim the mats to 1/16". Glue the square photo in the top left corner of the lime paper and the middle-sized photo below it. Glue the largest photo in the top right corner of the lime paper.
  4. Computer journal on white cardstock and crop to 4 3/4"x2". Add dashed penwork around the edges and ink the edges brown. Mat on black cardstock, trim to 1/16" and glue in the bottom right corner of the lime paper. Add squiggly and dotted penwork to the lime paper, surrounding the photos and journaling.
  5. Trace and cut template's Carousel pattern a total of nine times from yellow dotted, orange texture and aqua texture paper. Follow the instructions printed on the template to fold each pattern into shape. Ink the edges of the folded flowers brown and add dashed penwork around the edges. Hold the flowers together with a yellow, orange or aqua brad in the center of each.
  6. Trace and cut the template's Base pattern multiple times from lime texture paper. Ink the edges of each brown and add dashed penwork around the edges.
  7. Cut apart the Bases to form leaves and layer them under the folded flowers, then Zot™ eight flowers down the left side of the page. Zot™ the ninth flower in the bottom right corner of the page with leaves layered underneath.

A tip from Laura:
The Base shape found on the Fold-It Ribbon Swirls template is great for simply placing under your folded flowers, but I like to put a little twist on it. I trace the five-pointed Base on green paper, then cut off one or two points to layer under each flower for a leafy effect!
