cardstock: brown, green, black
paper: two patterns
other: black rub-on letters; black letter stickers; black fine-tip pen; two tickets; two black brads

Step-by-Step Instructions
1. Place a 2x9-1/4" piece of patterned paper, a 3-1/2x6-3/4" rectangle of brown cardstock, a 3/8x1-3/8" piece of a second patterned paper, and the photo on an 8-1/2x11" sheet of green cardstock as shown. Add a narrow strip of black cardstock along the bottom of the photo.
