1 Choose an attractive typeface on your computer and print out the letter in the desired size. Cut it out.
2 Remove the hardboard and glass from the photo frame and cut your mounting board and ordinary cardboard precisely according to the measurements of the hardboard.
3 Turn the mounting board over so that the right side is facing down. Draw guiding lines to help you place the letter accurately. Turn the letter over so that it is a mirror image and place it within the guiding lines. Stick it down with spray glue and trace the shape of the letter.
4 Cut out the letter neatly and turn the mounting board over again. The letter will now be in its correct form.
5 Place the mounting board precisely on top of the ordinary cardboard and trace on the shape of the letter. Remove the mounting board and stick the stamps on the letter. Place the mounting board on top of the ordinary cardboard again and stick it down lightly around the edges.
6 Replace the glass in the frame, then the two layers of board and lastly the hardboard. Close the frame again.
