You will need:

2 pieces of foamboard cut to 12” x 12”
Krylon™ Spray Adhesive
2 coordinating 12” x 12” papers, flowers, brads and ribbons
FoamWerks Circle Cutter
FoamWerks Straight Cutter

Instructions:

  1. Read directions for FoamWerks tools.
  2. Cut boards to size using FoamWerks Straight Cutter and metal ruler.
  3. Adhere papers to foamboard pieces with spray adhesive.
  4. Position circle cutter over center of one piece of foamboard and cut a 6” circle.

TIP: To find the exact center, draw lines from corner to corner on the back of the board. Where the lines intersect is the middle. Align center pin of Circle Cutter over center and cut there.

  1. With hole drill, punch out 5 holes centered at top of frame. Repeat on second board.
  2. Add embellishments as desired. Place uncut board behind the circle opening piece and tie together with ribbons. Back piece will serve as easel for standing upright.
