INSTRUCTIONS:

CREATE YOUR BANNERS:
Using your precut pieces of paper, measure a few centimeters up and cut a triangle out from the bottom to create your banner pieces.


LAYOUT:
Turn your two background papers so that you have a centre bottom cluster.  Cut out the edges of your cluster as per the diagram below.

Now tuck in your two Dark Brown strips of 11x27cm under the cut out pieces. 

Using your two 5cm striped strips, adhere your 4 thinner scalloped Dot stripes along the top and bottom of each.  You should end up with a total of 7cm in total for the height.  I turned my paper over and used my board to measure so that I ended up with exactly 7cm in height.

Now adhere this strip along the middle of your layout over both pages, approx 12cm from the bottom edge of the layout.

You can now adhere your DARK BROWN 15cm x 10cm photo mats to the left page (top right) and right page (bottom left).  



Add your two 13.5cm x 8.5cm BEIGE photo mats to the top of these -  Raise these beige mats on foamcore.

Adhere your six 7.5cm x 9cm small BEIGE photos mats to the front of each of your big BROWN strips evenly top and bottom.

Cut your remaining 4cm DARK BROWN pieces into 4 banners measuring approx 6cm (x2) and 9cm (x2)
Repeat with your 4cm STRIPED pieces by cutting them also into 6 banners measuring approx 8cm (x2), 9cm (x2) and 10cm (x2)

Stack the STRIPED pieces as per diagram (approx. 1cm from edge of page) and raise the DARK BROWN ones on foamcore and adhere to the top of these. 



Use your remaining DOT scallop paper along the top of these banners to neaten the edge. Raise this strip as well so the entire banner section is even.

 To finish:
Add your title along the centre of the layout (I cut mine in half) and also cut your long swirl in half and use half on each side of the title.

Add big brown flowers behind your Laser cut flowers and adhere to each corner cluster.  I added a big half pearl to the top of my flowers and along the Dotted Scallop strip by my banners.
