2. Peel back red liner to expose sticky tape.
3. Decorate with buttons by pressing them firmly onto the tape. Buttons can also be layered by using Treasure Tape Dots.

5. When you are happy with your design, dip frame into a shallow container of Diamond Beadlets® to cover the remaining exposed tape.
