Step 1
Center and adhere AG1154 to chipboard. Score around all edges with scoring tool and fold paper around chipboard.
Unfold; apply strong adhesive and press down again along all sides.
Step 2
Ribbon Memo Board: Read all memo board instructions BEFORE actually carrying out the steps below!
The following marks will create “points” that you will be crisscrossing the ribbons at to make the “X” pattern of the memo board.
Measure 5 1/4" from the left hand side of the board along top of the page. Make pencil mark.
Measure 5 1/4" from the left hand side of the board along the bottom of the page. Make pencil mark.
Measure 5 1/2" down from the top left hand corner of the board. Make pencil mark.
Measure 5 1/2" down the covered board from the 5 1/4" mark you made on the top of the board so you have a mark in almost the middle of the covered board
Cut ribbon into eight, 9" pieces.  [The ribbon piece I had in my kit was not quite enough to cut the pieces 9" long.  You might want to just fold your ribbon into eight equal lengths and cut.]
Take 1st ribbon; lay it diagonally from the top 5 1/4" mark on the top of the page to the 5 1/4" mark on the left side of the page. Take 2nd ribbon; lay it diagonally from the 5 1/4" mark on the left side of the page down to the 5 1/4" mark on the bottom of the page. (You just made a sideways V).
Crisscross the 3rd & 4th ribbons from the top left hand corner to the middle mark and the bottom right [This should be the bottom left.]  hand corner to the middle mark – so you end up with 2 “X’s”.
Adhere the ends of the ribbons to back of the chipboard or where necessary. Poke a small hole in the center of each “X”– make sure it goes through the ribbon and the chipboard so you can insert the 2 brads. Use the rest of the ribbon to finish making the “X’s” across the rest of the memo board. No more brads will be inserted.

Step 3
Slide the gold photo corners on the board and adhere.
Step 4
Fold gold ribbon in half and secure the ends on back of covered board to make the loop so you can hang the board.
Step 5
Photo Mat

Cover 5" x 7" chipboard with AG1158. Adhere this on a diagonal toward the right side of the memo board in the empty space where there are no brads.
Adhere four ivory photo corners on the covered chipboard spaced out so you can fit a 4" x 6" photo in them.
Step 6
Punch out and assemble die cuts. Decorate around the covered photo mat as in photo.
Step 7
Insert one of the deckle trimmed journal cards into the ribbon memo board.
Step 8
Back Covering: Trim AG1161 to 11" x 11". Adhere face up to back of the memo board.
Step 9

Adhere the other deckle trimmed journal card to the back of the memo board. Inscribe a pretty message to the gift receiver or “Handmade By:” if keeping it for yourself. Decorative with any of the smaller left over die cuts.
