Special Announcement Photo Prop Materials

How to:

Step 1: Cut out IG printed icons and set aside.

Step 2: Use a pencil, straight edge & tape measure/ruler to draw out the cutout for the picture frame (I left a 5” top border, 2” side borders, and 9” bottom border) for the icons. 

Step 3: Use a glue stick to glue down printed icons or follow the directions if you order a pre-made kit.
