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.
Trace window panes on first page of album.
Trace papers on the back side of paper you wAnt to show. Cut out a little larger then traced!
Glue paper over squares. When finished glue window frame on top. Use washi tape and shimmer tape to finish front. Decorate with compliments later.
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. Use a brayer to flatten.
