Instructions:

  3. Frame the outer rim of the case with colored tape

  4. Select decorative objects like: fun foam pieces, beans, wooden chips, googlie eyes, wool etc. to decorate the corners using white glue.

  5. If using fun foam, the children can use the Sharpie Black Marker to make dots on the foam or write something like "Luv U" or "To Dad" or "My Dog", you know what I mean.

  6. Adding a little glitter to the project would be a wonderful touch as the kids love glitter, however it is optional.

  7. Once complete, cut a photo or one of the child's masterpieces and place inside the frame with some scotch tape.

  8. Frame can sit on a desk or mounted on a wall.

By using a variety of materials you are also promoting recycling and reusing. Have Fun!
