How to: Punch a lot of circles in different sizes from a selection of patterned papers. Punch the photos into circles, also. Ink the edges of all the circles then sew them in a continuous garland using a sewing machine. Adhere the circles to a piece of 8.5×11 white cardstock in a vertical pattern, snipping the garland as needed. Add Thickers for a title and form a visual triangle with additional Thickers moving down the page. Finish with handwritten journaling down the right border.
