Project Details

  • Level:beginner
  • Time:1-1/2 hours

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Remove backing from frame as well as small frame (this allows you to choose to create a shadow box or regular photo frame!). Clean glass and put back in place.
  • 2
    Cut Sweet Dreams cardstock to 8 inch x 10 inch. Attach to frame backer with tape runner.
  • 3
    Cut White cardstock to 4 inch x 6 inch. Use Fabric Thickers to spell out name, leaving room on the bottom. Tip: cut out letters from backing paper and line up on paper to determine spacing.
  • 4
    Use foam Thickers to spell out date of birth.
  • 5
    Add 3-D stickers to fill in open spaces on cardstock.
  • 6
    Place 6 foam stickers in 2 rows of 3 toward the center of the back of the cardstock. This will allow room to have some photos tucked under the cardstock. Remove backing paper and layer a second set of circles on top of the first. Remove backing paper from foam adhesive circles and center on Sweet Dreams cardstock.
  • 7
    Determine placement of photos around the cardstock. Hint: Use dead space in photo to tuck under the cardstock so that you have best use of the space.
  • 8
    Use tape runner to attach wallet size photos around cardstock. For thumbnail photos, if they are a duplicate of the wallet sized one, overlap or place adjacent to the same photo using foam adhesive circles.
  • 9
    For thumbnail size photos that are different, place where there is open space with foam adhesive circles.
  • 10
    Place shadow box frame back into frame. Insert in artwork and frame backer. It's ready to gift to the new family or to add to your framed collections of memories!
