  • SDC13759-1 Grab your Paper Piercing Template (Stampin' Up! Mat Pack) and line up the holes for brads with precision.
  • Cropping the flower centers with the new circle punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack (118309, Summer Mini) gives a delightful lift when popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • The heart from the Tiny Tags stamp set is a sweet finish when pulled together with Linen Thread.  NOTE:  Tiny Tags is still available!  Click for all Occasions Mini Catalog Carryover Products.
  • Tie polka dot ribbon first.  Gently twist the ends so the polka dot side is face up . . . however, it looks cute polka dot side down, too.
