Step 1: Print on it Print titles, names, or song lyrics onto a piece of vellum and layer it on top of a page with an image. Since it's mostly transparent, the image will lightly show through. Attach at the top with brads, ribbon, or string so that the vellum paper can be lifted up to see the image underneath more clearly. Tip Allow the vellum to dry thoroughly after printing on it. Step 2: Use punches Use punches to cut out different shapes in vellum, like flowers or a floral border, and accent the borders of your photos and album pages with the vellum flowers. Tip Use only vellum glue on the vellum as regular glue will show through. Step 3: Layer it Tear sheets of vellum paper into strips so the edges will be rough and layer them so that they slightly overlap with one another. Adhere them together with vellum adhesive and use for titles or unique borders. Step 4: Use over photos Stencil your vellum or use vellum with a floral or geometric print already on it for use over a photo. You could also punch out part of the vellum so that one piece of photo underneath stands out. Step 5: Use colored vellum Use pastel colored vellum and adorn it with crystal or pearl beads. Layer it on top a poem, song lyrics, or handwritten wedding vows so you can lift it up and read them. Step 6: Mat photos Mat photos on a single colored piece of paper. Then mat that onto vellum, leaving a wide border for an extra dash of style and sophistication. Step 7: Use as glass Use vellum in your scrapbook for a regular glass "window" effect or to mimic stained glass. Did You Know? There are 25 million scrapbookers in the United States.
