Project Instructions

  • 1
    Print out photo two times, ideally to the size of the recommended picture size (4 inch x 6 inch, 5 inch x 7 inch and 8 inch x 10 inch).
  • 2
    Cut out detail of image (as in this photo, the girl).
  • 3
    Cut out scrapbook paper to size of photo; trim down the full size of photo so that some of the scrapbook paper will show. Layer background photo to scrapbook paper.
  • 4
    Use Adhesive Foam Circles to layer the cut out image over the background photo image. Line up. Tip: place into frame to see if any part of the layered photo needs to be trimmed (in this sample, the legs needed to be trimmed a little shorter to allow for the shadowbox frame).
  • 5
    Choose stickers from the 3-D sticker assortment to place around and over a part of the pictures.
  • 6
    Put picture frame together…you’ve got a dimensional work of art to preserve this special day!
