Class 424 Supplies
Tools: Scallop Scissors • 1/4" Hole Punch • Scoring Tool • Foam Adhesive
Step 1
It is important to trace all the pieces needed on every sheet BEFORE cutting.
AG837: Cut eight 1" x 12" strips. Cut three flowers using the pattern.
Step 2
AG1082: Cut out envelope using the pattern. Cut three 3 1/2" x 5 1/2" photo mats. [I was only able to cut two of the photo mats from this sheet.  You will need to cut the third mat from the second sheet of AG1082.  You will still have plenty of paper for the rest of your project.]
Adhere the three AG837 flowers from step 1 to AG1082 and cut around the shapes with scallop scissors. Poke hole in the center of each flower. Fold right sides together at the side of each petal to the center hole.
Fold each petal in half, wrong sides together, gently, not making a hard crease. Insert brad in center. Use banner patterns to cut three banners from AG1082. Punch holes as shown.

Rub on titles as shown.

[You will cut the banner mats using the patterns later, from the AG1085.]

Step 3
Adhere four 1" strips from AG837 step 1 to background sheets AG1084, 1/2" from each side.
Miter corners by cutting diagonally through the intersecting strips from the outer angle to the inner angle at each corner.
Step 4
AG1085: This sheet of AG1085 is a tight fit for all the pieces of the kit. Please trace ALL pieces in pencil carefully BEFORE cutting.
Cut banner mats using the banner mat patterns. Adhere to banners. Punch holes. Cut a 9" square. Tear in half diagonally. Adhere half to left page and half to right page. (Re-tear one edge to have white core of paper show, if desired.)
Cut a 2 1/4" x 12" strip and set aside for card.
Step 5
AG1037: Cut a 6 1/4" x 9" piece. Fold in half to make 6 1/4" x 4 1/2" card. Set aside.
Cut a strip about 1 1/2" wide that includes the two narrow yellow stripes on both sides of the blue dots. Set aside for envelope on left page. Envelope liner will be cut from the remaining paper.
Step 6
AG1061: Cut three photo mats 4" x 6". Center AG1082 mats on these pieces and adhere.
Step 7
AG1088: Cut six leaves using the pattern. Cut three 1/4" x 12" strips for stems.
