Instructions: Take your craft knife and cut to size different designs of the patterned Classic Petunia paper as shown to cover the background base of the frame and attach. Using from the same paper collection, cut paper to fit the outside layer of your Masonite photo frame and photo openings. Then adhere the Masonite frame onto the background base. Add your mini gems to 2 photo sections and cut pieces of acetate at 4 x 4″ to cover the 2 chosen sections. Now attach the petunia paper that you previously cut to match, directly onto the outside of photo frame. Add a chipboard sentiment and frame to the center.  

To create the petunias, stamp a total of 12 flowers in purple Stazon ink onto the lavendar foamiran paper and diecut. Use six large and six medium to create your foamiran flowers. I then took my BV08 copic pen and added some deeper color to the flower centers. Next you will heat set each of the flowers which allows you to mold each flower. Simply bunch the flower as in forming a bud and twist. Use a double staggered layer on each of the flowers so the flowers are fuller. Then add your stamen flower centers to each one. Add the flowers to the center of your decorative frame, surrounding with any other elements you want for a complete look.
