  • 3. Embellish all six sides of each block with assorted Pocket Pages cards (trimmed or die cut as desired), stickers, paper scraps, buttons, brads, and rhinestones. If using brads, insert into paper before adhering to block surface. Thread buttons with Scrapper's Spool floss before adhering to surface for added texture.
