....some buttons
....ink
....pen
....a saucer to trace around
.....and some Alphas for the title
....double sided tape and glue
....scissors

trace around the saucer and cut out
ink around the edge


step two
cut one piece of P/P 4 and three quarter inches x 9 and a quarter inches (12cm x 23cm)
cut another piece of P/P 7 and a quarter inches x 2 and a half inches (18cm x 6cm)
tear along one long edge
cut the last piece of P/P 5 and a half inches x three quarters of an inch (14cm x 2cm)

cut 2 thin strips approx 4 inches (10cm) and 2 and a half inches (6 and a half cm)
cut 2 small leaves (one a little larger than the other)
ink around all the edges

step four
scrunch up the 4 circles

and flatten them out



step five

to look like this


step six
place your photo on the P/P


step seven
place the ric rac approx half an inch (1cm) below the photo



step eight
place the thin strips scrunched up circles and leaves on the right edge of your photo to create the flowers add buttons to create flower centres
place the a button on the left hand side of the ric rac




add your title and draw little lines around the edge of the cardstock to create a stitched look
