Instructions:

  2. Paint Scallop Coaster pages in Snow Cap and Atlanta Uppercase Alphabet in Pink Sherbet, allow to dry, Using a crop-a-dile punch a hole in each corner scallop
  3. Using a paint brush cover painted Scallop Coaster pages with liquid glue, while the glue is still wet completely cover with iridescent glitter, tap off excess, allow to dry
  4. Using the end of a paint brush randomly apply glue dots, while glue is wet apply iridescent glitter, tap off excess, allow to dry
  5. Using a white pen outline each glitter polka dot
  6. Adhere Scallop Coasters to the center of each Square Banner page
  7. Adhere Atlanta Uppercase Alphabet to the center of each Scallop Coaster
  8. Thread Tulle through each Square Banner page, tie a Tulle Bow at each end
  9. Double Knot Tulle in between every other page, double knot Maya Road Candy Polka Dot ribbon in between each Tulle Double Knot
  10. Adhere White Seam Binding Bow onto each Tulle Double Knot, adhere Ballerina Cupcake Topper in center of White Seam Binding Bow
  11. Adhere Heidi Swapp Clear Bling Border to the top (in between slits) of each Square Banner page
  12. Adhere Lace to the top bottom section of each Square Banner page, adhere Sequin Trim to the top edge of Lace just applied to Square Banner pages

Now it is ready to hang for the “Birthday Girl” to enjoy. This will also make a cute mini album after the party is over. All you need to do is remove each page from the tulle, place photos of the birthday girl and her guests on the back (upside down from the front so when you flip up the page the photo views correctly) of each page, place the pages on the binder rings, tie tulle bows on them and there you go… a beautiful memento to reflect on in the years to come.
