I just paired up each word with one I thought it went best with. Some of those at the end don't go that well together. Then I cut a piece of card stock to fit inside of the lid of the box, round the corners then slide it in. After you are sure of the fit, take it out, and for each stamp take it and stamp the two phrases together on the card stock, leave just a small amount of space between each one. This way you can look on the card stock and see that Adorable is with Cute etc. This worked great for me. BTW, the stamps that I put on the sides I cut the sticker down on them so they fit on the opposite side as well. Also be very careful and make sure the larger of the two phrases in each set gets put onto the bottom of the block where it has a larger area. If I did not answer your questions let us know!

Lisa's response below pretty much hit it on the head for me. I wasn't sure how to match up the stamps. I started looking at them though and figured stuff like giggle and smile would work well together. She also Rx taking a piece of c/s and stamping the sets as they appear together. Do you have anymore suggestions?

Thanks alot Lisa, guess I was afraid to get started. Your suggestion of taking a piece of c/s was perfect! Thanks!!

Phew! I mounted my Fancy Flexible phrases tonight! You will be crosseyed before you are done!!Be sure to keep all of you scraps and cuttings. When I thought I was done I was missing a stamp, and missing a label. I looked through everything! I had mistakenly mounted 2 phrases...got it straightened out! Good luck to future flexible phrase mounters!!
