    Cut a 2 inch x 3-1/4 inch piece of your favorite paper from the pad and adhere to tag base.
  • 4
    Cut a 2 inch x 3 inch piece of Ivory burlap from the paper pad and adhere to the top of the piece of paper cut in step 2.

  • 7
    To make the accordion paper flower, locate the Pink and Ivory polka dot paper from the pad and cut a 3/4 inch x 8 inch piece. Fold the paper like an accordion. Once complete, bring the top end to meet the bottom, creating a circular shape. Glue the ends together.
