Project Instructions

Step 1

Wrap a wide sheer ivory ribbon around the bottom of layout. Adhere to the back with tape. Tie a bow around this ribbon in the left corner.

Edge “Best Thing” image with gold glitter glue. Allow to dry.

Step 6Attach a feather to the back of “memories” piece. Use a piece of tape to hold it in place.
