  2. Cut 2 3/4"x3 3/4" Nature's Watercolors tan paper and ink the edges. Stamp the tree in the center, then mat on cardstock with 1/16" borders. Foam tape near the right edge. Trace the label pattern below and cut it from Nature's Watercolors striped paper. Ink the edges. Stamp "superstar" on it, then mat on cardstock with 1/32" borders. Foam tape as shown, placing two layers of foam tape under the left end. Place the Dazzles™ as shown.
