I ran my background paper through the xyron to make a sticker. Start adding your mosaic pieces which are scraps randomly cut. Tweezers really helped with the placement. Once your mosaic is done cover the paper with EP. I rubbed it into all the little cracks to make sure they all got filled in. I used a large paintbrush to get all the excess off. It won't brush away the EP from the cracks. Then just heat the EP and there ya go. It was challenging for me to figure out how to decorate the card. I didn't want to cover up the mosaic.
