  2. Cut the edges at the corners. Working with the wrong side facing up, fold up the flaps of the paper. Place the Aleene’s Tacky Glue onto the paper edges and use a piece of cardboard to squeegee the glue, so it is smooth and the paper flap is completely covered.

  8. To attach the papers to the panels, use the Aleene’s Collage Pauge for the light weight papers and the Aleene’s Tacky Glue for any of the heavier items. When using the Aleene’s Collage Pauge, brush onto background first, then to the back of paper. Place onto the background and place another coat over the top. Repeat until all papers are attached to the background. Let dry.
