Step 1: The Frame

Find some cardboard! I found a sturdy cardboard box, used my X-acto knife to cut it into one long segment, and used a section of it. Measure out of your cardboard a 2-inch border all around. Draw a rectangle inside your rectangle of cardboard. Use your X-acto knife to cut it out, leaving you with a frame very familiar to that of a picture.
great idea!
