Would you like a printable version of this tutorial?
If you've ever tried to print out a tutorial from a blog, you'll know how frustrating it is to have a super long document that wastes a lot of paper and really doesn't look that great. I have taken the aggravation and work away from you and condensed all the step-by-step photos from this tutorial into 4 pages (6 pages total, including title page and page with supplies and recommendations). I've also included time saver steps with this version. The printable version is available for $4.99 below.
