PROJECT TUTORIAL:

Burnish the folds of the card base with a Bone Folder.

Layer and adhere the Designer Series Paper and Sweet Sorbet layers together and to the card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Adhere the Designer Series Paper belly band strips (2) to the Basic White belly band strip (1) with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Lay the card in the center and mark/score the belly band to wrap around the card.  Leave a wee bit of room to allow it to slide on and off. Adhere the ends together (leaving the seam where the flower will cover)with Multipurpose Liquid Glue
