Graphic 45: A Place in Time Collection Papers November Foundation, November Cut Aparts, Calendar Foundation, Chipboard Tags 2, Olde Curiosity Shoppe Collection Paper 8 x 8 Butterfly Specifics.
Prima: Say it in crystals, Flowers, Leaves
Petaloo: Flowers
Stampin Up!: Ribbon, Pop Dots, Twine


Step 1. Starting with the November background 12 x 12 paper cut the brown ribbon a little bit longer so it hangs off the edge of the paper 1”.


Step 2. Scotch tape the right end of the ribbon to the paper just above the leaves.


Step 3. Flip the paper over. Wrap the ribbon around the paper and scotch tape it o the back side of the paper


Step 4. Cut out the following pieces from the collection.


Step 5.  Adhere those pieces as shown.


Step 6.  Place the crystal bling onto the upper right hand corner of the paper.


Step 7. Adhere the 3 flowers around the crystal bling using Glossy Accents.


Step 8. It’s best to place the Glossy Accents onto the flower rather than the paper. This is the amount of glue I use.


Step 9. Cut out the turkey on this piece of paper from the collection.


Step 10. Apply Glossy Accents to the backs of the green leaves.


Step 11. Adhere turkey and leaves as shown above. Do not worry if the glue shows through the leaves. We can cover that up later.


Step 12. Cut out the two butterflies from the Olde Curiosity Shoppe Collection.


Step 13. Arrange the Petallo and Prima flowers to hide any glue showing through the green leaves. Adhere them using Glossy Accents.  Attach the butterflies with pop dots.


Step 14. Tie the ribbon by using the same brown ribbon to tie two bows. Next, tie on the seam binding. Attach the tag with twine.


Step 15. Cut out the following pieces of paper from the collection and adhere them with popdots.


Step 16. Tie four small bows using twine.


Step 17. Attach bows with Glossy Accents in between the stamps.

That's all for today, G45ers! Huge thanks to Kristin Wilson for her amazing work today! Remember, G45ers, you can upload images of your finished Place in Time calendar tutorial to our Facebook page at the end of this tutorial series.
