Step 1: Easy to Gather Materials:
thread or yarn (embroidery string works best!)
colored pencils (only art supplies that work)
use sketch paper or heavier weight paper (if you want no light to pass through)
you can make a picture that displays messages when you hold it up to light but you cant use paper any thicker than office paper
Step 2: Cutting the Pieces
3in. by 4half
4half y 5in.
4in. by 5in.
they can be any length as long as 2 are 1measurement and 2 are the second measurement so u can make a square
Step 3: Starting to Build
now tie them together like shown below
Step 4: Starting to Wind
now wind the thread around the frame on the outer side of the joint about ten times
look at the second image now wind the thread along the inner side of the joint about ten times
(alternate these steps until the joint is solid and the swewer does not slide between the thread when you take your hand off
Step 5: Continuing to Wind
(remember im using embroidery string which is much thicker than thread. thread is too thin to show up on camera)
wind around the cylinder as shown below
Step 6: Finishing on Your Own
(this time you don't need to tie)
continue until you have a complete square (or whatever shape u wer hoping for)
im sorry im leaving the rest up to you but i have confidence in you that you can complete this task without further assistance :G
Step 7: The Picture
trace the outline of ur frame and cut it out just a little bit inside the lines.
now u can draw your picture... draw whatever ur little heart desires the most
(if ur lazy you can print a picture and trim it to fit which is an easy alternative for beginners.)
when done just tape the photo in the frame but before u do this check out opt. attachments
Step 8: Opt. Attachments
flip over your frame and find the spot where u want to write on the back of the picture. write the message as a COMPLETE MIRROR IMAGE dont u dare mess this up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(write in black colored pencil and press hard or else it wont show up
tape a sheet of paper the same size as the photo to the back.
if you have done everything correctly... you should not be able to see words from either side, now hold it up to a bright light and the letters will amgically appear!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
now tape it into the frame
Step 9: Ur Done
now go have fun
i challenge u to think of new ways to use these frames but have fun for now
