These are the instructions I gave everyone over the course of about 90 minutes.
Find one 12×12 sheet of cardstock to use as a background
Select a co-ordinating piece of cardstock and cut a 5″ round circle out of it. Set aside.

From patterned paper #2 cut a rectangle measuring 4″ high by 7.5″ wide.Label on back, #2. Set aside. From patterned paper #3 cut a rectangle measuring 6″ high by 4″ wide.Label on back,#3. Set aside.
Find 2 photos & crop if necessary. The larger photo is 4″ wide by 6″ high and the smaller photo is 2″ wide by 3″ high. Set aside.Ink the circle, rectangles & photos if desired.
Place circle in upper left corner leaving a 1″ gap from the left edge & a 1/4″ gap from the top edge of cardstock.Adhere to cardstock.
Place rectangle #1, 2″ down & 2″ to the right from the upper left corner of the background cardstock.( you will be overlapping the circle) Adhere.

Find 2 pieces of ribbon, one is 11″ long and 1″ wide and the 2nd piece is 10″ long and 3/4″ wide.
Place the 11″ ribbon horizontally 1/4″ from the left edge of the cardstock and 1/4″ from the bottom edge of the photo. Adhere. Place the 10″ ribbon horizontally 1″ from the left edge of the cardstock, overlapping the 11″ ribbon so that only 1/2″ of the bottom ribbon is visible. Adhere.
