Directions

STEP 1

  • Place one-quarter package of clay onto waxed paper and roll to 1/4” thick. Stamp postage images onto clay, leaving enough space between images to cut them out with pinking scissors. Let dry completely.

STEP 2

  • Remove inserts from album covers. If covers are sealed, use craft knife to carefully slit tops.

STEP 4

  • Cut one 3-1/4”x5-5/8” and one 4-1/2”x6-1/4” piece from brown/pink oval paper. Insert larger piece into back album cover. Adhere smaller piece to light pink piece, leaving 1/8” border on three sides.

STEP 5

  • Adhere green ribbon to cardstock, overlapping edge of paper; secure ends at back. Adhere to card front.

STEP 6

  • Use glue dots to adhere metal letters to card as shown.

STEP 7

  • Measure stamped images and add 1/4” to each measurement; cut Pretty Pink cardstock to size and layer under stamped images. Adhere clay pieces to card as shown.

More
