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.

Step 3

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