Well, here's what happened! I cut out 2 identical sizes of chipboard. On one, I drew a box 3/4" in all the way around. I used my ruler and craft knife and cut out the center, creating a frame. I painted both sheets of chipboard "cranberry" I then cut the papers into 1" squares (would have been much more precise with an acutal square punch, but we all make do sometimes) and started adhering them to the base red piece, separating each piece 1/8" on all sides. I layered a sheet of acetate on top of that. Used foam tape to mount the frame on top of the acetate and then used a rub on to say July. Turned out pretty patriotic if I do say so myself!
