fish partsA FotoFish Fun Frame

You’ll need:

  • A Styrofoam tray
  • Colored tissue paper
  • Glue stick
  • Varnish

fish cutHow to build it:

  1. Draw the fish on the tray and cut it out. The fish should be a little smaller than the photograph you want to frame.
  2. Cut different-colored tissue paper into little pieces.
  3. Using glue stick, glue both sides of the tissue paper to tray so that they overlap a little.
  4. Also cover the fish cut-out, which will serve as the frame’s stand.
  5. After you’ve covered the frame and the fish, varnish both.
  6. Let the pieces dry, then glue the fish to the back and use it to hold up the frame.
  7. Attach the photo to the back of the frame with adhesive tape. Pretty fishy, isn’t it?

 Use your imagination: You can cut out any kind of shape to make your frame. Try a star, a sun, a flower, or make a bunch or smaller openings for a multi-photo frame.
