Step 1

Mouse Over to Zoom
Cover 10 1/4" x10 1/4" cardboard with paper AG1152 (Black with White Flowers).
Step 2

Mark then score AG1145 (Black & Gray Faux Embossed) paper from top to bottom every 3/4" x 1/4" x 1/2" x 1/4" repeat for entire page.

[Be careful and follow these measurements exactly or you will have some pretty funny looking pleated bo

Step 3
Cut paper into 1 1/2" strips making sure the score lines are horizontal when you put the paper into the cutter. You will need 8 strips which is 1 sheet of paper.

Mouse Over to Zoom
Fold strips back and forth to create pleats.
Step 5

Mouse Over to Zoom

Tape two strips together to create 4 long strips and glue around edge of AG1144 paper (White with Black Flowers and Birds) leaving about a 1/4" gap from the edges.

[As you can see, I used glue to attach two stripes together and added tape to the back to help keep the pleats in place.  Keep your tape along the inside edge of the strip so your pleats will still stand up.]

Step 6

Miter corners and secure.

Mouse Over to Zoom
Step 7
Glue the covered cardboard to the page using several layers of foam squares. Foam squares should be in the center and close to the edges as not to go on top of the pleats. Use 3 layers of foam tape.
Steps 8 & 9

With the remaining AG1142, cut out the two smaller bunches of flowers and adhere to the edge of the scroll without flowers.
Step 10

Glue vertically to left side of covered cardboard.

 

Step 11

Mouse Over to Zoom
Place large 3D flower sticker on top of the same flowers in the center of the scroll.
Steps 12  & 13

Cut a piece of AG1143 at 5" x 3 1/2" (Black with White & Pink Faux Doily).

Add photo corners and glue to a piece of AG1151 (Pink & White Faux Embossing) paper cut to 5 1/2" x 4".

Step 14

 

Glue to page and add ribbon and tag.

[You will need to cut the ribbon in half so you will have enough for the right page.]
