I started out by measuring the openings in my frame and cutting Chocolate Chip cardstock to size for the mats. I then used my 1 1/4" square punch to punch 24 squares out of my DSP. I lined up all my squares and started gluing. I tried and tried to get those squares straight, but they just would not cooperate. Instead of pitching everything and starting over (which I thought about LOL), I decided to try something else. There are no mistakes, you know, only opportunities for embellishment. :) I cut 1/4" strips out of one of the pieces of Afternoon Tea, and I used them to "frame" my squares. Voila! Now you can't tell how crooked they are...were. ;) What do you think of my home decor? I hope you like it as much as I do!
