Project Instructions

  • 1
    Select photos. Choose one of your Star to highlight, cut out close to body and glue to white paper. Follow the same trim line and cut a quarter inch white border. Set these aside.
  • 2
    Choose your Star's number and stick it to white paper. Trim around the number leaving an eighth of an inch white border. Glue to denim triangle. Let dry.
  • 3
    Depending on size of photos and length of your Star's name, choose to continue with either a horizontal or portrait landscape with your frame. Be aware of the frame hanger and be sure to keep that right-side up!
  • 4
    Glue Fabric to top half of frame backing. Let dry.
  • 5
    Cut felt to resemble grass or a hill and glue to the bottom half of frame backing. Let dry.
  • 6
    Use the decorative edge scissors and cut the green paper to resemble grass. Glue on top of the felt allowing a portion of the felt to show. Let dry.
  • 7
    Trim two lengths of ribbon to fit from edge to edge of frame. Glue one to the top and glue one to the bottom. Let dry.
  • 8
    Trim excess fabric, felt and paper from the frame backing.

    Choose the letters of your Star's name. Add 3-D dots to the back of each letter and stick above the bottom ribbon.
  • 10
    Now that you've created the background, move your photos, the appropriate sport sticker and the denim triangle around in the space until you're pleased with the layout. Use different amounts of 3-D stickers to create depth with your items and stick them to the background.
