5. Place foam squares on backside of ladies – you may need to trim squares in half for smaller areas like the heads.
6. For the inside overlay, place small amounts of glue on the black portions of the flowers so it doesn’t show through. Punch out the Happy Birthday die cut and attach to card.

Tip
The mirrored paper is very shiny so be careful of fingerprints! The silver mirror paper in this line would make an excellent mirror in a project.


 

Happy crafting!
