1. To create beautiful and unusual stationery, glue a casting (whole or cut out, white or painted) onto a piece of writing paper or note card. Note: If you plan to paint the casting, first apply a coat of acrylic varnish and let dry thoroughly.
2. To give a 3-dimensional effect, cut craft paper in a square, round, rectangular or other shape (perhaps the same shape as the cut-out design) and place behind the casting to frame it (see photos of the rose stationery as well as the basket heart card).
3. Optional: You may want to add a favorite phrase, poem, or birthday greeting to the paper prior to gluing on the casting.
