Class # 509 Picture Perfect Matrimony

Step 1
Cut three 4" x 12" strips AG1155 for pleats. Mark and score each strip at 1/4" and 3/4" intervals (1/4", 1", 1 1/4", 2", 2 1/4", etc.).
Then cut each strip into 12" x 1" strips. Fold the first 1/4" score line back and then accordion fold strip.

Cut the 12" x 12" piece of ivory cardstock to 11 3/4" square. Adhere eight pleated strips around the edges of the cardstock, two on each side, aligning outer edges and overlapping the strips at the corners. [I tried a couple of different adhesives and found that a permanent roll on worked best for me.]  Miter the corners by cutting diagonally from the outer corner to the inner corner.

Remove excess paper and adhere corners. Center and adhere to background sheet AG1157.
Step 2
Cut about 1/4" from the outer edges of AG1160 to the outer line of the pattern.  [Using a paper cutter gives  you a straighter edge.]
Use a craft knife and mat and cut on both sides of the curved corners of the frame printed on the paper. The photo will slip under these corners.
Step 3
Cut a 3/4" x 12" strip AG1158 and set aside for second page. Adhere AG1160 to AG1158 and trim, leaving a narrow border. Center and adhere to pleated-edge cardstock
Step 4

Use the pattern to cut out the envelope from AG1157.

Score and fold sides and adhere flaps in place.You will cut the 2 3/4" x 1 3/4" journaling card from AG1161 after you cut the pieces needed on the second page.
Step 5

You may want to place the stickers around the frame after the photo is in place since the stickers overlap the photo. [The flowers on my page are not attached yet.  I cut each flower out of the sticker sheet.   This way I can cut away just enough backing to have it stick on the page, but not on my photo.  I prefer not to put stickers on my precious pictures.]

Done!
