Basically what she did was take the back off a decorative frame and hot glued the glass into the frame. Then she arranged the blue gems into an "R" and filled in the rest of the frame with green gems. Once she was happy with the placement of the gems, she used clear drying tacky glue to secure them to the glass. Next she cut strips of ribbon to make the hanger and to cover the back of the frame where you could see the glue spots from removing the cardboard backing and hot glued those ribbon pieces as well. It was really easy to make and Ms. Q had fun making it. She asked for one for her birthday but requested that I not make it, only give her the materials to make it herself. That girl cracks me up.
Oh, and Happy Birthday R!!!
