  3. Using the butterfly stamps and ink pads, stamp butterflies randomlyaround the yellow cardstock.
  4. Using the Carnation Pink or Hydrangea iron-on ribbon, outline eachbutterfly. (Lay the thread at a starting point, cover with the Presscloth, and press with the hot iron for several seconds until the thread adheres.Continue along your design, working in sections.)
  5. With the fancy-edged scissors, cut another piece of aqua cardstockto be one half-inch larger than your photo. Cut a piece of purple cardstockto be 1/4-inch larger than your photo. Mount the purple cardstock onto this aqua piece, then your photo onto the purple cardstock using Treasure Tapedots. Mount this onto the lower right corner of the page.
