Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue or Fine-Tip Glue Pen to adhere the cut out purple swirls van image over the top of the van image on the white rectangle so all the lines match up.
Cut a 7" piece of the Highland Heather 1/2" Grosgrain Ribbon and an 8" piece of the black and white Baker's Twine from the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack.

Use a strip of Tear & Tape Adhesive to adhere the folded ribbon with twine bow to the back of the matted van and sentiment rectangle. The ribbon should stick out to the right side of the rectangle. The twine bow should be just past the right edge of the rectangle. The ribbon should be in line with the sentiment.
