                                                             ii.      Push in the tabs, now make sure your pen will slide in and hook.
c.        Using Sticky Strip, attach the note pad to your base.   Be sure that the ribbon on the pad does not show over the top of the cover.
2.        Attach the piece of ribbon to the 3 ¼” x 7” Summer Smooches DSP using Sticky Strip or SNAIL.

b.       Blushing Bride – 3 leaves and one 5 petal flower
c.       Poppy Parade – 1 Blossom
d.      To assemble:
                                                               i.      Using Multipurpose glue, attach 5 petal flower to blossom.
1.       Using Paper Piercing tool, attach the brad.
                                                             ii.      Using Multipurpose glue, attach the 6 leaves alternating colors.
4.        Using Sticky Strip, attach flower to the front of your cover.

 Isn't this a great gift idea!!!!!  It was a big hit at class on Friday.  The card stock used is the retiring In-Colors, but remember you can make these with any color combination you would like.
