4. Cut three pieces of patterned paper. Ink the edges using a foam applicator.

Gluing 3x3 paper to blocks

5. Spread tacky glue over entire flat surface, avoiding the edges.

3x3 Paper adhered to block

6. Place the patterned paper over the surface. Smooth out with your hand, to avoid bubbles. Repeat this for all three plaques.

7. Cut a small piece of patterned paper and place it inside the punching booklet.

8. Place the P3-011 Scalloped Circle punch template over the patterned paper with the PUNCH EDGE DOWN.

21. Leave the paper inside the punch template and move it to the embossing booklet. Press the down button until the platform reaches the bottom. Raise the platform with the up button and remove the booklet and the paper from the punch template.

22. Repeat the process to create three Fleur De Lis.
