It's really fun to make these little gems! Microscope slides are inexpensive and easy to work with. I got mine at http://www.microscopedepot.com. The foil tape I got at Michael's; it's 1/4" wide and is found in the metal craft section (by the art supplies). Basicly, you stamp your paper on both sides (or use two pieces and stick back to back), then color in as desired. Sandwich between two microscope slides, taping the edges with the foil tape, making sure you add a loop for hanging, if desired. I used the Xyron to coat the paper with adhesive so that the slides stuck to it.

This is a fabulous sample - thanks so much for sharing detailed instructions to make it. This is timely because I just ordered the Gentler Times set and recently purchased the microscope slides & foil, but hadn't used. Now I have a "project" - thanks!
