After u got those thing u can begin:

Step 1 Center the sparkly letter word or phrase over the photo window and secure it in place, letter by letter. (Peel away the backs if your letters r not self-adhesive or apply glue if they r not)

Step 2 Wrap the ribbon (polka dots r ideal) around the base of the frame,gluing the ends behind the frame.
