Instructions: Take a light Blue Cardstock and use the backside. Now take a few dies where you like the outside shape, lay down the die on 1 top corner and trace it with a pencil all the way around and also the inside, then put it on the opposite corner and do the same. Then you put an edge die down and do the same, if you traced them all, you going to put very tiny holes on the pencil lines, maybe 2 millimeters in between the holes, after you’ve done this turn your page and put glue on the holes, this is very easy with the fine tip! Then you cover the glue with the Crystal Clear powder.
