I didn't use any Dimensionals to add the inside embellishments. And I mad sure that I didn't have any adhesives behind these flowers where photos would be going.

Time to decorate the front.

  • Layer together the sponges, curled Mint Macaron die-cut flowers using Glue Dots and/or Fast Fuse. (Oh! and be sure to add two really small ones to the center. I didn't have those shown in the first photo of prepped supplies.)

  • Use Fast Fuse to attach the mint flower to the cover. Use Dimensionals and Fast Fuse and/or Glue Dots to add the title banner. Then use Fast Fuse to add the extra flower embellishments.
