Best Friends Epoxy-Look Title

7. Rub the top of each letter on the clear embossing ink stamp pad, then dip immediately into the Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel.

10. Dot the ‘I’ in your title using a flower Bradletz.
Shrink Plastic Title
11. Using the Sizzix Pigeon Toed Alphabet, cut ‘Junior High’ out of pre-sanded shrink plastic. Cut with the sanded side faced down.
12. Use permanent markers to color each shrink plastic letter.
13. Carefully , and slowly, heat each letter with the embossing gun. Heat one letter at a time, holding the letter down with a pair of tweezers or scissors so that it doesn’t blow away.
14. Place finished shrink plastic title in place on the cover of the book and mark the holes on each letter using a needle. Sew each letter in place, following these pre-punched placement holes.
15. Adhere the curved front cover to the designer paper.
