Step 1
Cut out of fabric your base of the page (12×12 if you scrapbook that size or as I did A4 size)
Also gather your own scraps…

Step 2
Place your fabric on your non stick mat…Paint fabric stiffener on one side and wait for it to dry…

I also only put some on parts of my fabric pieces… And left other parts of the same piece..

Step 3
Turn over your fabric pieces and put fabric stiffener on the other side… This method may take longer but it is more product efficient.

Step 4
Once pieces are dry use your squeeze punch to punch out shapes…
PLEASE NOTE: do NOT force any punch… Some do not work. If it doesn’t feel like it will work STOP. I wouldn’t want you to break your punches… I am not responsible for you breaking your punches use at your own risk.
You can always use your cuttlebug dies or fancy rotary cutting blades.
