Instructions:

Base

  1. Refer to diagram 1 and cover entire panel with base fabric to form base blocks, the lining for the pockets and picture frame.
     
  2. Working from the center out, position fabric piece on soft foam and tuck into grooves with a butter knife. Secure with a line of glue to make it permanent.
     
  3. When wrapping fabric around the foam to the back, fold the fabric as you like around the side, then secure on the stickybase™
     
  4. It’s best to peel back stickybase liner from edges as you work – DO NOT remove entirely until you are ready to mount to the wall.
     
  5. Use a glue gun on the back corners to secure fabric in place.

Wrap remaining around to adhere to back and secure with glue in the grooves.
     
  3. Fabric G (12x16) – Fold the 16 inch edge down two inches to form the top of pocket and press. Lay the fabric on top of the base square making sure you line up the top and have one inch of fabric to tuck in on the left and about three inches extra on right and the bottom.
