Die cut the Picture This frame out of the aqua cardstock. The small frames work perfectly with the Sizzix SideKick machine.

Cut a piece of clear acetate to fit behind the frame window. Use liquid adhesive to adhere the window to the back side of the frame window.

Adhere strips of the Sizzix foam adhesive around the back side of the window. Apply a light dusting of baby powder along the inside edges of the foam adhesive to keep the sequins from sticking to the edges.

Pour a small amount of sequins onto the center of the card front and adhere the frame around the sequins to hold them in place.
