Things to know before you start- 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
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. The black mat is cut out of the black camera paper. Size is 4 1/4 x 3 1/4. The white/yellow mat is cut from the cards in your kit. Use the Journaling pen for outline work.
