Step 1: Gather your supplies: a canvas (mine is 9.5” square), 1 sheet of brown cardstock cut to 9” square, 1 sheet of kraft cut to 8.5" square, a sheet of brown polka dot paper from the Amy Tangerine READY SET GO collection, some buttons, and Thickers. I chose to work with burlap Thickers as well as some glitter foam ones. I used a cut file from the Silhouette shop which includes the tree, the hearts, as well as the quote.
