Materials needed:
• purchased tote bag 
• 4" x 6" photo (we used a yellow daisy picture taken at a lake lodge lastsummer)
• two 4" x 6" red liner Treasure Tape™ sheets
• Diamond Beadlets®
• Kreinik #12 Braid in colors to match your photo (we used 091 Star Yellowand 015 Chartreuse Green)
• shallow pan or tray

1. Remove white liner from one 4" x 6" Treasure Tape sheet and place on topof your photo. Peel back the red liner to expose the top sticky area.
2. Begin thread embellishment by laying colors of #12 Braid in various placeson your photo. For example, outline the flower petals with the yellow braid,and follow the stem lines with the green braid. Press the thread with yourfinger to make sure it adheres to the tape. Decorate to your heart's content.The more embellishment, the better.
3. When thread decorating is complete, lay the photo in your shallow trayand cover remaining sticky areas with the Diamond Beadlets.
4. Attach the other 4" x 6" sheet of Treasure Tape to the back of your photo.Remove the liner to expose the sticky part, and attach the embellished phototo your tote bag in the desired position.
