Tip for the title: Using the pattern and a ball point pen trace over the top of the words onto the background. When you remove the pattern you’ll have an indention of the words. Then, take a thin black pen and trace over the indention. You can also use this tip for tracing the shapes from the pattern sheet. Since most printers don’t allow cardstock or 12” x 12” paper, this is a great technique to remember.
