Read through all the instructions first before starting this craft, there are three processes that need to happen concurrently.

Step 1

Choose your design, this will fit into the middle of the case. Your picture will be placed on top of the design. The design I have chosen is a heart decorated with pink, purple and red embellishments, making this an ideal Valentine's craft.

Step 2

Take your Scooby-do wire and bend it into the shape of your design. I have bent mine into a heart shape For Valentine's Day. Glue the wire in place using jewel glue.

Using jewel glue fix your embellishments around the wire shape, taking care to fill all the empty spaces.
