  1. Cut aqua paper to 11 ¾ x 11 ¾”.  Center and adhere to green dot  on a 12 x 12” page.        
  2. Cut 16 – #3 Classic Scalloped Squares (#1 being the smallest) from light pink paper.  Emboss 8 Garden Delight flowers and Emboss 4 with butterfly, and 4 with flower using with Spellbinders™ Grand Calibur® machine. 
  3. Apply ink to embossed patterns by using a hard surface ink pad direct to paper rubbing in a circular pattern.  Rotate paper square and work from each edge towards center until ink is evenly applied.
  4. Cut large square with #4Grand Scalloped Squares(#1 being the smallest square) from light pink paper.  Emboss with Splendid M-Bossabilities™ folder (flowers).  (Tip: Square is bigger than embossing folder so emboss about 2/3 first time and then 1/3.  Place square slightly askew in folder to emboss.  This offsets the “seam” where the 2 patterns meet and will be less obvious if the match is off a bit.  When sandwiching the M-Bossabilities folder between the mats, keep the edge with paper extending at very edge or slightly extending beyond mat when running it through the Grand Calibur machine.  This keeps the folder edge from making an embossed line across the paper that extends beyond the folder.)
  5. To fasten small squares to page, start with 4 corners.  Align the squares about ½” from edges of aqua paper. Then add a flower square at center on each side.  Finally fill in spaces between with other squares with butterfly and bigger flower squares.  Fasten securely with adhesive.  (Tip: Use a 12” clear grid ruler as a guide along paper edge to get squares straight and even.)
