I made this small frame

What you need:

A small frame (mine is wood and has magnets on the back)
A magazine picture(s)
Clear Nail polish
A marker
Tacky Glue
Scissors or cutting knife
Acrylic paint
Foam brush
Old Credit card (to even out glue)

Optional: glitter nail polishes

How to do it:

1. Prepare surface of frame for paint (Cleaning and/or sanding it)
2. Paint frame with acrylic paint, let it dry
3. Trace frame on to wrong side of image
4. Cut out image
5. Apply coat of glue even out layer of glue with an old credit card
6. Adhere image to frame use card to remove bubbles and wrinkles (if your like me, you can leave those on!!) and let dry until glue turns clear
7. Coat with clear nail polish (Open the windows!!!!) let it dry
8. Add glitter nail polish to highlight image
9. Coat with clear nail polish again!
10 and your all done.!!!

Holy cow jamie you rock!! I always save those flimsy credit
cards that come in the mail for glue spreaders!! Once when i was dumpster diving i found a bunch of Barbie fake credit cards.. and I use them all the time.. I even ask my friends not to through them away.. Because they work sooo well... I even use them to make sharp creases *just make sure they are clean*.. wow that's pretty nifty.
congrats!
