Step 2    

Print photos just a bit bigger than the tart tins. Use a circle and oval cutter to cut the photos according to the right size. Also cut plain coloured pieces of cardboard to mount the photos on.

Step 3    

Decorate the plain coloured cardboard with silver glitters to give it an old look. Stick double-sided tape onto the cardboard circle. Cut the sides round and flatten it. Pull of the top sheet of the double sided tape. Sprinkle glitters onto the glue part and through of the excess glitters. The glitters will stick to the double-sided tape.

Step 4    

Sand the sides of the photo with sand paper to remove some of the colour and give it a weathered look. Mount the round photo on top of the glitter circle and then on the pattern paper circle.

Step 5    

Cut foam rubber into small pieces and place it inside the tart tins. If you are satisfied with the height you can glue it to the tin. Lastly stick your mounted photo onto the foam basis.

HINT: the foam just gives height to the photo. You can decide how high or low you want to mount it in the tins.
