I make myself a template from scrap CS. I use my thumbnail to push around the handles and make an impression then cut those out and make two slits. So, the final piece has two slits, one from the right edge into the first handle, then an oval shape cut out for the handle, then another slit from the first handle to the second handle and another oval cut out for that one. When I glue it all down, I end up making sure my two slit edges meet and the ovals are around the handles. Hope that helps, if not, pm me and I'll try to explain it better!
Templates are the key here, you can figure it out without messing up your good paper... and you can use it over and over once you have it the way you want it!

My favorite paper, too! I'm glad they still have it. How many coats of Mod Podge did you use, and did you use it on the bottom of the paper as well as the top, or sticky strip? Just wondering, because sometimes it shows streaks so badly. Also, did you put Mod Podge over the flower and the alphabet blocks spelling out card?? Thanks for your inspiration!
