Cut off all zip strips before cutting any paper. You will be using some of them to embellish. A zip strip is the top piece of the paper with the design on it.
The first step is to cover all your cardboard pages first. Trace design on back of your paper. Make sure you pay attention and do not glue the wrong pattern to the wrong side.
Also, pay attention to your pattern paper and make sure you are tracing the design in the right direction. Some of the paper in this packet is a one way design! Tricky Tricky but beautiful when done.
I use bonding memories glue for gluing down the edges. It will not wrinkle your pages. Be sure to put the glue on the edges of your paper especially around the punched holes.
Decorate cover as shown. Red shape is pre-cut for you and in your packet. The bear is raised by using 3 D tape. Add a sparkle to the snowflakes if desired. Back HELLO DECEMBER with white paper.
I used a very thin layer of Bonding Memories glue to adhere the clear HELLO DECEMBER to the white piece of cardstock. You have to cut the cardstock around the Hello December!
