-print out of state (desired size)
-heart or star hole punch
-glue stick (not pictured)
1. Cut out the state but leave enough around it to be able to tape it to the scrapbook paper you're using for the state, tape the state to your scrapbook paper so that it doesn't move when you're cutting, then cut out your state with your craft knife.
2. Next, take your heart or star hole punch and punch it in your desired sb paper color to mark your capitol. I just used the edge of my background sb paper since that was the color I wanted and I wasn't using it all. Also, cut your background sb paper to whatever size frame you will be using. Mine is 8x10".
3. Finally, use your glue stick to glue down your layers. You should end up with something like this.
This is really easy and fairly cheap as long as you have some of the tools in your arsenal, so enjoy. If you try it, please share your version with me. I'd love to see it!
