Project Instructions

*tip: Wet adhesive (glue) might warp the paper, so a tape runner or adhesive dots are just right for this project. Choose your hometown, your favorite vacation destination or where you went to college as meaningful décor.

1. Roll Permanent Roller Dots onto backside of embroidery hoop and adhere desired maps or scrapbook paper.

2. Trim excess paper.

3. Finish with ribbon or twine to hang or add lightweight memorabilia to the inside of the hoop.
