My pattern paper was wrapping paper from final 12 months 😉

The gluebook pages are not that huge (about the measurement of a passport) so it’s superior to hold the assemblage more simple by employing just a handful of things. I have kept my paper picks to a few items. You can always embellish afterward with some rubber stamping or other little paper parts.

It provides you everything you have to have to get commenced correct away, building and filling your 12 internet pages of Xmas collages. You will also get entry to a brief 10-minute online video to go over almost everything.
