First I select a the paper that I want to use. I glue the magazine insert to the back of the paper. Wait about 10 minutes for the paper to dry.
Next, trace your cutout or letter in permanent black marker(or a marker that you can see). Now you are ready to cut out the shape.
This method is not as strong as chipboard, but it does give your project a little more stability and you can also use glue pads to give your project some extra added dimension.

Thanks for other uses.With my G.children,I give them;a hole punch,yarn and a plastic needle and they use their imagination.
