Corticelli Thread Advertising Cards
1. Cut out around the rectangle perimeter of both halves. Do not cut two panels apart!!

2. Fold down the center line between the two rectangles. Paint glue to the two blank sides, then press together making sure that the edges line up perfectly. Place under something flat and heavy until dry.

3. Detail cut around the image. Do this from the front where the artwork is found.

Tape Measure
1. Use the metal straight-edge and a sharp X-acto blade tool to cut this item.

2. Wind tight to make a coil. This makes it easy to drape it around the neck or waist of a dress dummy.

Bias Tape Packages
1. Cut out around the rectangle perimeter of both halves of bias tape board. Fold down the center line between the two rectangles.

2. Paint glue to the two blank sides, then press together making sure that the edges line up perfectly. Place under something flat and heavy until dry.

3. To add realism, take 1/16" wide ribbon and wrap around board covering printed tape.

4. Cut out label and glue around bias tape board.

Snap and Button Cards
1. Cut out at perimeter of each card and backing. Fold in half so blank sided are against each other and paint on glue. Press under something heavy until dry.

2. You can glue min snaps and buttons directly to the card, or use clear dimensional paint to make it seem as though there are snaps and buttons attached. A little drop carefully to each printed button works very well. To ensure that the drops don't magnetically draw to each other to make a big glob, drop on every other or alternate snap/button. Allow to dry completely before going back and dropping on the bare alternates.
