Materials:Picture Frame (8X10)-Photos-Scissors-Tape
1. Select photos to include in the frame. Think of a specific theme, like family vacations, or school dances. You can mix and match sizes, but you’ll probably need 6 to 10 photos to fill the frame.
2. Sketch a layout for the photos before you make any incisions.
3. Cut the pictures to fit the collage, make sure you keep the boundary edges straight.
4. Tape the collage together from the back
5. (Optional) print messages about the pictures, or theme to include in the college.
6. Place final collage in frame.
7. This collage can be done on a smaller scale too, especially if you have digital photos a good printer.
Materials:Wire Hoops/jewelry wire (18 or 20 gauge)-round top wire pliers/cutter-charms&beads
Directions to make your own hoops:
1. Using the wire cutter, cut 6 or 8 pieces of jewelry wire (3-4″ lengths depending on preference)
2. Using the pliers, make a loop on one end of each piece of wire (the size of the pliers’ top)
3. After you finish beading, you will create another loop and round the wire with your fingers (like making a ring)
1. Place charms and beads on wire hoop, making sure each hoop is unique and distinctive.
If you’re using pre-made hoops, do not fill the wire with beads. If you’re using hoops you made yourself, you can fill the wire.
2. Closing pre-made hoops:use the plier to bend 1/8″ of the wire perpendicular to the loop. This bit should be easy to move in and out of whatever closure is on the other end. Pre-made hoops may need you to help shape them.
2. Closing home-made hoops:use the round tip of the plier to make another loop like the one you started with. Use your fingers to shape the wire into a ring that can now be slid on and off of glasses.
