  1. Place metal over frame with opening centered and allowing 1” overhang at top and ˝” at bottom. Lightly press metal to frame along outer and inner edges to mark area to be stenciled. Remove metal from frame.
  2. Place pansy stencil on one corner of metal frame cover. (Refer to project photograph for placement.) Rub a Fantastix on Mustard ink pad to pick up ink. Dab Mustard ink in center of pansy and along center vein line on leaves. Pounce a sponge dauber onto Azure ink pad then around center of pansy allowing some of the Mustard ink to show. Repeat using a clean dauber and Royal Purple ink to color outside edges of pansy. Use another sponge dauber and Forest Green ink to finish coloring leaves and tendrils.
  3. Place stenciled metal on a magazine or phone book for padding. Use the smaller end of the embosser to outline leaves and flower petals. Continue embossing around stenciling to fill in background.
  4. Run silver leafing pen around opening edges and along bottom of frame.
  5. Cut an “X” in center opening from corner to corner. Trim opening metal sides to impressed outline using a straight edge and craft knife on a cutting mat. Fold ˝” along bottom edge to back.
  6. Place double stick tape around frame opening, along sides and bottom edge. Center metal on frame then press down around opening, sides and bottom edge. Apply double stick tape to top edge on backside then fold metal over top and smooth onto tape. Use an old credit card to press down all edges and smooth metal.
  7. Cut two 2” x 10 1/2” strips of metal. Place on back of frame sides. Rub lightly to mark top, bottom, sides, and easel stand. Trim easel stand side to fit. Apply double stick tape to long sides of metal strips. Smooth strips into place on sides.
  8. Insert photograph into frame. Place plastic sheet included with frame in place. Stamp your choice of words onto plastic sheet using Royal Purple ink.
