 SUPPLIES…

Acrylic magnet frames (Check craft or office supply stores)

Pictures

Scrapbook paper

Assorted ribbons

Conversation Hearts

Paper trimmer and/or scissors

Glue stick and Hot glue gun

Decide what scrapbook paper you would like to use for a background and then cut it to the size of your frame.  Then trim photo to desired size and adhere to background paper.  If you want to add anymore flat  embellishments you can do that now or wait and do it on the top surface of the frame.  Insert picture into frame.  If it feels like the picture is going to slide out, then use a glue dot or piece of tape to keep it in place.  Usually these types of frames are snug enough to keep the picture in place.
