- Stamp (using Black) and emboss (using Black) three White chipboard squares as follows: first square Canvas Stripes, second square Lattice Background, third square Zig Zag.
- Print “CREATE” in font of choice, sized to approximately 1-1/2” to 1-3/4” tall, and spaced so that letters can be cut out in 2” squares, on Computer Grafix sheet. Let the ink dry, and then cut out letters in 2” squares.
- Cut six 2”x2” squares from the remaining White chipboard squares. One at a time, place 2”x2” White chipboard squares in Color Catcher and spritz each with a different color of Smooch Spritz; set aside to dry.
- Adhere letters to “Smooched” chipboard squares. Cut six 2-1/4”x 2-1/4” squares from Metallic Foil Board; mat “Smooched” squares on Metallic Foil Board squares.
- Adhere matted letter squares to centers of 4”x4” chipboard squares to spell “CREATE”.
- Mark and punch two holes on both sides of 4”x4” chipboard squares for “R”, first “E”, “A”, and “T”. Punch only the right side of “C” and the left side of the second “E”.
- Cut ten 8” ribbon lengths. Thread ribbons through punched holes to tie letters together.
