Tutorial for embellishing a collage sheet!!!

Vicki H.
There are a lot of choices for these collage sheets. After you have purchased your collage sheet from the source shown above, print on cardstock and cut out all pieces. Mark with the dull side of your exacto knife and fold the ATC envelope and the little envelope for your thankyou card. Punch hole for tag and proceed with the embellishments. I used a makeup sponge to touch up edges of everything and did a little stamping with a sepia toned ink. add names to your thankyou card and envelope-decorate your tag with ribbon. lace, trims and a charm. Your envelope for your ATC card should be as lovely as what you are putting in it, so that the person that receives it can show it proudly in a beautiful envelope. On the back of this is a place to sign and date. I added touches for Marie's jewels and hair pretties with a gelly sparkle pen. My plan is to store these collage sheets in a zip lock with some wonderful smelling bath powder or candle chips so they will smell as good as they look. I hope you like this idea and can use it for your art.
The bottom picture is how they will look after they are printed and glued. The other 2 are after my embellishments. i would love to see what you do with these. send me a picture and I will post it.
