- Box Frame » – I recommend using a square picture frame with a minimum width of 20 cm (8 inches).
- Coloured/ patterned card » – I would suggest going for something that it preferably 12 x 12 inches that you can then cut down.
- Wooden Letter stickers »
- La De Dah poloroid photo frames »
- Double sided tape »
- Personal photograph
1. Before getting stuck in, decide on what you would like your letters to spell out as well as how you are going to arrange them. It is important to do this first because then you can work out if it will all fit in the frame, if not you can always rearrange your words and rethink the layout.
Top Tip…Planning out how your frame is going to look will help stop wastage from happening, especially if you have chosen a particular piece of card and decorations to use.
2. Using a La De Dah poloroid frame can also help to work how much room you have to stick down your letters as well as how much room you will need for the polaroid frame.
3. Once your letters have all been stuck down, you can decide on the placement of the polaroid frame so that you can stick down your photograph first. These frames are approx. 10 x 8 cm, so your photo needs to be no bigger than this.
4. Using some double sided tape, stick a few pieces onto the back and your photograph and then stick it down onto the card and then stick the polaroid frame on top. The polaroid frame is self adhesive so don’t worry about sticking double sided tape onto that.
5. Place the polaroid frame close to the letters to show the connection between the two.
