Step 1: Turn to the “Wild and Crazy Kids/Girls Rule” 2 page spread. Take out both pages and lay them in front of your work area.
Step 2: Prepare the elements for the left-hand side of the spread. To do this, adhere your first photo behind the Polaroid frame. Adhere 3 flowers and 2 small chipboard hearts across the bottom of the frame. Clip the binder clip onto the top of the frame.
Step 3: Take out your ruler and pencil. Lay it horizontally across the page, ½” up from the bottom. Beginning ½” from the on the inside edge (same edge with the holes for the binder), make a pencil mark every 1” until you get to the pink scalloped line. You should have 6 dots when you finish.
Step 4: Take your hole punch and punch a hole in the same place as every dot. Beginning on the outside of the page (next to the pink scalloped border), thread your ribbon through the holes, going up and down one way and looping back until you have 2 ends at the starting point. Tie them in a bow. Adhere the Polaroid photo in the center of the page. Lay this page to the side.
Step 5: Adhere 5 of the banner stickers from the clear sticker sheet across the top line of the “Wild and Crazy Kids” page. Adhere the two remaining photos along the right side of the page, just below the caption shield. Adhere a small journaling tag from the Journaling tag pad on the bottom of the page (*this will need to go directly over the last hole—re-punch the hole before adding your journaling).
Step 6: Write in a title for the spread, as well as any journaling on the tag.
Step 7: Put the pages back in the binder.
