INSTRUCTIONS



FRAME







Cut two hearts from the cardboard -- one with the center
cut out (this is the frame) and one that does not have the
center cut out (this is the backing). Also cut out the
stand. If the frame seems too flimsy, cut a second one
the same size and use them together (you may want to use a
couple of dabs of hot melt glue to make sure they stay lined
up.
Find both ends of the skein of fun fur (one end will be
inside the skein.) Holding the two strands
together, tie them around the frame at the bottom.

Make a loop of the yarn. Reach with your hand
through the loop, reach over the frame, grasp the strand of
yarn as it goes to the ball and pull it through the first
loop. Tighten the first loop.
Reach through the loop and underneath the frame, grasp
the strand of yarn and pull it through the loop.
Tighten the loop.
Repeat, this time reaching over the top. Alternate
pulling the loops through the top and the bottom moving
around the frame until it is complete covered with fur.
Tie off securely.
Put the frame on a flat surface and use the hairbrush to
fluff the fur.






Using the backing piece as a guide, trim your photograph
to fit the heart.
Use the hot melt glue to stick the backing to top part of
the frame. Fold the stand as indicated and stick
the top part of it to the back of the frame so that it will
prop it up.
If you have ribbon, candy or other decorations, attach
them to the frame with hot melt glue.
Insert your picture and enjoy!
