Instructions

  1. Remove the back panel, cardboard insert and glass piece from frame. Save glass for another use.
  2. Cut a piece of batting the same size as the cardboard insert. For the background piece, glue batting onto the cardboard, edges matching.
  3. Cut a piece of fabric about 1¹₂ in. larger than the background piece on all sides.
  4. Lay fabric wrong side up on work surface. Place background piece, batting side down, onto the center of the fabric. Wrap one side of fabric around to the cardboard side of background piece and staple.
  5. Pulling the fabric taut, wrap and secure the opposite side in the same way. Wrap and secure the remaining 2 sides in the same way, folding fabric at back as if wrapping a gift.
  6. With the fabric right side down, insert the wrapped piece into frame. Replace the back panel. Pin brooch to center front through the fabric and batting.

NOTE : Before wrapping fabric over the cardboard insert and batting, make sure everything will fit in the frame with the back panel in place. The fit should be snug but allow for the bulk created by wrapped fabric ends.
