Mold a base for your photo frame. Make sure that it is at least 1″ deep and 2″ around. Make it any shape you want. Use cardboard or a table knife to make a slot in your base. Go at least half way down through base and wiggle it back and forth a little to widen. Bake on a cookie sheet for 2 – 2.5 hours or air dry overnight.

Paint the base whatever color you like and let dry

Cut photo into a 3″ circle. Attach it to CD with double face tape. Cover the back of the CD with sticky back felt. Use tacky glue to secure in into slot in base.
