      Lisa, after it is dried, lay your background paper under a phone book oveight to flatten. If you are in a rush though, which I am a lot, lol, cut out a piece of cardboard the size of your project, and attach your project to it. This will make your project more stable, and you can keep working on it. 🙂 If you don't want it on there permanently, use painters tape to attach it.

      Hope this helps!

          After its dry, flip it over and mist the back with a spray of water. That will straighten it out.

            Yes. Mist the back of your layout with some water. That always does the trick for me.

              Debbie I have been cussing at mine also and have been beating them with a stick!!! So hard to get a good pic when they are curled.

                    I use the water spray on the back method as well but most of the time I just let it curl and I kind of like it. When I put it in an album that gets it under control.

                      What fantastic tips!!! I hate my paper getting all wavy and curly. Had no idea how to stop that.

                      "Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

                        What's an ALBUM? LOL! All of my layouts are in boxes.

                        LOL!!

                        I also spray the back of mine if it bugs me….it rarely does.
