  1. Emboss border around sides of 12" x 12" background paper. Emboss two sides, then turn paper to emboss pattern on opposite sides.

Trim 3" from top and side of light blue paper then adhere to the center of the embossed background paper.


Emboss the bear, rattle and bottle onto off white cardstock then cut out. Emboss bow, hearts and bottle neck onto medium blue paper. Cut around shapes.


Cut an oval from the body of the bear then adhere the photograph behind the opening. Adhere to the center of the page. Adhere bottle and rattle as shown. Adhere additional medium blue elements of design with foam tap for additional dimension.


This page is for the photograph of a little boy, so the bow was cut from the top of the bear's head and placed under the chin as a bow tie. Lightly chalk raised areas if desired.

Note: Two stylus are provided with the Scrapboss. For a deeper emboss, emboss design with the large end first then re-emboss with a smaller tip.
