I love that they're all double sided. To get my stripy border I cut a 3" strip from my background, flipped it over and attached it back on using a strip from the Border sheet to hide the join.
The border strips are perfect for making rosette flowers. I see rosettes everwhere so I decided to give them a go. I used a 6" length the width of whichever border strip I chose and folded them back and forth in about 1/4" increments. So easy! I punched little circles and distressed them for the centers and added a Kaiser jewel.
I used another of the Border strips for my journaling bits. I just tore each piece out and stacked them on top of each other before writing out my story.
I like to tuck tags behind my photos as an embellishment. These ones are outlined in black ink and then I scattered a few buttons.
I tucked a couple of Prima's pink hydrangeas below the rosettes and title sticker (Jolees) and scattered some Kaiser jewels around it all. I even put a few on my photos.
And here's the finished layout. I used more of the Border strips to ground my photos. The alphabet letters are from another Cosmo Cricket line I had in my stash.
