Scrapbook Paper Landscape How-To
1. Create a 12-by-12-inch background by overlapping two smaller pieces of scrapbooking paper. One piece will represent the ground, the other the sky; the overlap should be 3 to 4 inches from the top or bottom of the page, depending on the design. Tape pieces of paper together on the backside.
2. Enlarge and print template. Roughly cut out template pieces, and use a glue stick to attach each to the backside of different patterns of scrapbook paper. Cut out shapes precisely along lines.
3. Attach pieces to background with a glue stick to create landscape.
4. Glitter details on landscape with a glue pen or white glue.
