1. Trim your chosen patterned paper to 8 1/8” x 5 5/8” and affix it with low tack tape behind the arch aperture, without the dome.

  2. Fussy-cut a bird and a few butterflies from the Botanical Beauty paper pad.

  3. Affix the bird within the arch using foam tape.

  4. Score the body of the butterflies and add double sided-tape on the back. Don’t put any of the tape on the wings. Affix the butterflies on the top of the arch and fold and raise the wings.

  5. When your scene is finished put it aside.

  6. Affix the dome to the card base with strong double-sided tape, then adhere the scene behind the dome.

  7. Finish by adding a few embellishments and a sentiment.
