Instructions:

    1. Cut one oval (5.25” x 7.25”) and one strip (2.5” x 12”), from the deep taupe
       printed paper. Use deco edge scissors to trim the edges of the strip. With
       adhesive, attach the strip to the left side of the burgundy printed paper and
       the oval shape to the right side of the burgundy paper, one inch from the
       top edge.
    2. Thread the machine with invisible thread, set machine with a straight
       stitch. Attach the ecru lace to the outside edge of the deep taupe oval.
       Overlap the ends and secure.
    3. At the computer, type the name of the person and date of birth, use a
       script style font. Print onto beige paper with burgundy ink. Trim the
       dedication to 7.75” x 2.5”, use deco edge scissors. With adhesive, attach
       the dedication near the bottom center of the page.
    4. At the machine, place the remaining beige paper under the presser foot.
       Tack the end of the green silk ribbon, in place, on the paper. Make a 5/8”
       loop (this will form the first leaf), holding the ribbon back under the presser
       foot with the help of the tweezers, tack with a few stitches. Make 2 more
       loops using this technique, trim away excess ribbon.
    5. Start the burgundy ribbon in the same manner, tacking in place, directly
       over the top of the green loops. With the tweezers, make seven 1/2'’
       loops. These will be the petals of the flower.
    6. Start the gold ribbon in the same manner, as the green ribbon, tacking in
       place, directly over the top of the burgundy loops. After a few tacking
       stitches, leave needle in “needle down” position, wrap the gold ribbon
       around the needle 3-5 times. Now, slowly raise the needle, holding the
       wrapped ribbon tight to the petals, with the tweezers. Stitch a few times in
       place to secure the gold ribbon, this will form the center of the flower and
       can be repeated 2-3 times.
    7. Complete another entire flower, using the above technique.
    8. Center the flowers in 2.25” squares, cut out with deco edge scissors. With
       adhesive, attach the squares, on angle, to the center of the deep taupe
       strip, near the top, one below the other.
    9. With the gold marker, near the deco cut edge of the two beige floral
       squares and the dedication block, draw a thin line around each shape to
       frame the flowers and dedication.
