To mitre the corners, you need to place a ruler from the inside corner of the strips across to the outer point where the borders cross over each other. With a pencil draw a line. Use a pair of scissors and cut the top strip only along the pencil line.
Cut your sheet of “Afternoon Tea” to 6 inches high and 12 inches wide. Then cut it into two pieces. One needs to be 5 ½ x 6 inches and the other needs to be 4 ½ x 6 inches. Cut your piece of lace border to match.
You now need to make your pocket. Once it is finished you can adhere it to your right page.
Use a pearl brad to adhere your flower to your “Moment in Time” print. Ink an Imaginarium Designs chipboard clock black. Add it to your “Moment in Time” piece on top of your “Timeless Memoir” border strip and to the left of the bottom of your key. Add two small forget-me-not flowers with gold brads. Add two leaves over your clock. Now you have the front finished. Adhere it to your pocket. Wrap the two pink ends of your borders around to the back of your pocket.
Cut a rectangle of “Moment in Time” 4 inches x 6 ½ inches and adhere it to your “Garden Stroll” It needs to go on about 1 inch down from the top of the inside of your frame and about ½ inch in from the inside left edge of your frame. Add a photo corner to the top left corner of your print paper.
