Irresistible Layout

You will love this glitter star scrapbook paper by The Robin's Nest for your kid's pages. It's so bright, happy, & full of energy. You will find it just perfect for birthdays, trips to the park, or candid playtime photos. 


 A Closer Look: 






Directions:1. Trim 1/2' from the edge of both sides of 12' red cardstock to make an 11.5' square. Cut a irregular frame hole from the center of 11.5' red cardstock to look like an explosion blast. Attach the red frame to Circles Glitter Cardstock.

2. Cut the main photo into a 3.5' square, and matte it with Brilliant Blue Glitter Cardstock. Use a 2.5' circle punch to cut one photo and use a 1.5' circle punch to cut three smaller photos. Frame three photos with blue cardstock and one with red cardstock.

3. Arrange the photos and then use a pencil to lightly mark any designs in the background paper that will be hidden under photos. Next, carefully use a craft knife cut around the images that you have selected. Use the designs you have removed as embellishments and adhere them with foam tape to the layout. Next, cut a selection of various size red & white stars.
  


 4. Add the title under the main photo using Blue Glitter Stickers. TIP: Place the letters on a piece of transparent plastic sheet just temporarily so that you can try different places for the title and find the perfect placement before you stick them down.

5. Finally, matte the 11.5' layout by adhering it to the striped paper which is the reverse side of Bunny Cardstock. TIP: For the frugal crafter, carefully cut out the middle of the striped paper and save it for another project. Since it will be hidden by the layout only revealing the border, cut a 10' square with a craft knife.
                                                        
6. Lastly, embellish the layout with a sprinkling of Goldenberry Dew Drops.
