Materials:

  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam:
    • Three 1" x 12" x 36" sheets
  • Nine 12" x 12" sheets scrapbook paper
  • Ribbon, 1" x 12 yds.

  • Nine Sawtooth picture hangers

Holding foam sheet firmly on a flat surface, extend one end and cut across score line, using knife like a saw.

Repeat with remaining two foam sheets.
