To begin, take one slide frame. Take one piece of wire and string a few beads on. Wrap one end of the wire around the frame in the upper left hand corner, leaving about an inch tail. Use the round nose pliers to curl the wire into loops. Add more beads and curl the wire as you go. Be careful to avoid the notches on the back of the frame when you wrap the wire around the frame. Add two more wires and beads to your design.

For the last wire, wrap the wire around the bottom center of the frame. Add beads and curl. You can also make beads dangle off the edge of the frame for added interest.

Pick out a short word or name to stamp on the frame. Use the Staz-On ink and an alphabet stamp set and stamp your word directly on the frame. Clean your stamps with the Staz-On cleaner.

Cut your photo approximately 1” x 1” to fit the frame. Place behind the decorated frame. You can add a little tape if necessary.  Take the second frame and align the notches on the backs of the frames. Snap frames together. You may have to adjust the wires wrapped around the frames when snapping together. Glue on a magnet or pin back behind frame.
