  2. Carefully remove the glass from the frame and set aside.
  3. Cut the foam board and the mat paper to size.
  4. Apply spray mount to the mat paper and attach to the foam board.
  5. Use the ruler and a pen/pencil to mark the placement on the back of the frame for the drill holes (for the handle and the feet). Carefully drill the holes (do not go all the way through the molding). Do Not attach handles and feet at this time.

  8. Lay lace doily on the mat paper. Tack the doily down in several spots using craft glue, let dry. Trim excess doily away.
