2. Cut a strip from the book grunge paper, adhere to bottom of the atc using zip dry, set aside.

3. Layer velvet ribbon onto atc using kids choice glue.

4. Glue the Watson doll part to the center of the atc using kids choice glue, let dry.

5. Distress the edges of the atc using distress ink pad of choice, by swiping it around the edges, let dry.

6. Cut a 2 inch by 2 inch square from the leather grunge paper, then make a diagonal cut down the center of the square to form a triangle shape, fold over to form a cone glue in place with kids choice glue, attach to Watson's head for his wizard hat.

7. Pierce paper or floral wire into Watson's left hand, secure with kids choice glue. Now punch a few stars from black card stock using a small star punch, glue to Watson's wand and around the atc using kids choice glue.

Tips/Tricks:
-Buy my un-finished parts to paint the way you like and use one of them in this project.
-Use felt or leather for the wizard hat.
-If you don't have my paper on hand, use a skeleton stamp to decorate plain card stock and use that as the atc base.
-Try blue or purple German Glass glitter or colors of choice.
-Try adding bat wings for more fun.
