Step 4

One nice thing about having the wrapper folded on your page is you can tuck in your embellishments and some words as well.

As you can see, I trimmed the wrappers to the size of my cardstock and switched out the background to enhance and bring out the colors of my design.

All it needs now is a lovely photograph to go in the middle.
