Project Instructions

  • 1
    Select up to 12 of your favorite vacation photos. Note: In this project 3 inch x 5 inch photos were used and the total number of images in your finished project will depend of how many embellished circles are desired.
  • 2
    Cut out the 3 inch circle template. Position the circle around each of your photos, determining which areas of the image you want to showcase in each circle. Then using the template, trace a 3 inch circle onto each image and cut out.
  • 3
    To mount your circles, adhere a 3-D adhesive dot to the top, bottom, and both sides of the back of each circle. Use a ruler to determine the spacing, and attach circles to shadow box backing. Be aware of the frame hanger and be sure to keep that right-side up!
  • 4
    Seal the back of the frame, hang and enjoy!
  • 5
    For embellished circles, select some of your favorite decorative papers and use the circle template to cut them out. Add destination stickers that highlight monuments visited and icons that remind you of the destination and your trip. Finish off by hot gluing Crystal Strands (remove beads from the string first!) and using Ranger Glossy Accents to add texture.
