1.}Cut butterfly die using a sturdy paper
2.}Cut Fantasy Film to approximate size
3.}Using a hot craft iron, sandwich between parchment paper and iron till film adheres to die-cut. Once it is cool, fussy cut around the edges.

Layers as follow:

-parchment paper
-Iron with hot iron NOTE: Do not touch fantasy film directly to iron.

Above before rubon title, below after rubons


 Fussy cut the doilies from the doily paper, then trim to fit into the doily die. Note, I had to cut and reassemble to get them to fit properly.
Using the doily patterned piece of cardstock for the center of the 12 x 24 layout. Cut plain cardstock and secure to outside edges. Gesso stencil with suitable stencil for your pattern. Let dry.

Spray over with shimmer spray, let dry
From a regular large paper doily, cut the edge off. Next use Clear Gesso to coat the back of the doily. While it is still wet, but slightly tacky, manipulate with a pencil to make a gathered look. Let dry.

A Mini Spool art message bauble
First assemble what you want to use for your spool
Next, layer the ribbon and lace under your word piece. I sewed them together on my sewing machine. A simple larger stitch through all layers.
Note: I had to choose a larger spool once I got it all stitched together.
Make sure and leave enough of a tail to wind it onto the spool and secure.
Decorate the spool first with a hot glue gun.
