(Optional: To make it easier to get the desired size and position of the rectangle and square window shapes before cutting into the cover, draw around a piece of cardstock the size desired to create the windows.)
Place a cutting mat inside the book to prevent cutting through the pages. Use the retractable blade to cut a large rectangle shaped window into the cover of the book, centered in the top half. Cut a square shaped window into the lower right corner.
Cover the outside of the book with pattern paper. Use a different pattern paper for the spine of the book. Place pattern paper on the first page of the book to peek out of the small, square window.
Add a Grand Adhesion Flower in the hole of the square window. Use rickrack scissors to cut patterned paper for a border around the square window.
In the large rectangle window cut the paper for the background. It will go on the first page of the book just like the square paper.
Using the Stitched-on Templates, mark and stitch the template to spell the word “Sweet”. Under the “ee” in the word, add a heart from the template.
Place the letters to spell “Craft” use foam tape for dimension.
Use decorative-edged scissors to cut patterned paper into decorative edges and borders for the rectangular window and the book.
Glue the first page to the backside of the book’s cover. This will hide the work area.
Add stickers to embellish the text.
Use photo as a guide and follow manufacturer’s instructions for all products used.
When cutting, use straight-edged scissors unless otherwise indicated.
