Picture of Step 7
Hang your very own piece of fine Italian craftsmanship on a small nail and add some blue tack to the back of the frame so that it doesn't fall off when you close the door.



Tips
-Use watered down school glue (PVA) as paper mache paste. Paste containing flour goes mouldy if its not properly dried.
-Use a laser printer. Ink from an inkjet printer could run when it gets wet and you won't be able to see the template.
-If you choose to dry the frame in an oven (@ <200F, 90C) or with a hair dryer, tape the frame to a baking tray to stop it warping.
-The paper mache won't stick to the bread tag so put some spots of super glue around the edge to hold it down.
-In order to get the frame perfectly aligned over the peephole on you door, put a tiny drop of paint over the V cutout on the bead tag and press it into place on the door. Remove the frame and there will be a dot of paint exactly where you need to put the nail.
-Put a layer of tape on the back of the frame so that the blue tack doesn't damage the frame when you take it down and show your friends to make them jealous.
