Just a few things that made me roll my eyes at myself.
I failed to pay attention to the printer setting before printing out the pages to tape together.
Quickly figured out I had "fit to page" instead of actual size selected. When nothing was lining up.
Fortunately I have grand children that like to color so they have some pages to color!

Reprinted with actual size.

Used my Mom's light box to trace the stars in reverse on my fusible product.
That is right after I started tracing them without reversing them and waking up to that mistake fortunately before I added the fabric.

Scanned one circle and one leaf and laid them out on a page so I could get all the circles on two pages of fusible
and all the leaves on two more pages of fusible.
Printed those and used my hair dryer on low heat to dry the ink.
My grand kids thought I was crazy.

Then I fused the pages to the fabric and used my Brother Cut N Scan to get those guys done super fast.
Best investment I have ever made.
Then I re-read the directions to see the circles were supposed to be a variety of colors.
Oh well, mine will all be red.

Tried to do the same scan and cut with the flowers but could not figure out how to remove the parts I did not want cut so did that with the light box too.
