To Create Notebook:

3) Cut a piece of kraft cardstock that measures 6 5/8 x 5 3/4” with S5-164 Grateful Lattice die template. 
Note: Align paper just below the cut edge of the die template.

4) For a continuous piece, run die through the Spellbinders™ Grand Calibur® GC-001 die cutting and embossing machine a second time after carefully repositioning die on paper so that the pattern repeats.

5) Adhere lattice die over patterned paper.
