Attach the 3-1/4" x 4-1/4" cardboard to the back of the crochet piece. Center it against the outside edge of the white yarn. Glue along the sides and bottom only. Do NOT glue the top edge. It needs to be left open so you can insert the photo.
Glue the decorative trim all around the inside edge of the frame.
On the second piece of cardboard, draw a "leg" as shown in the image below.
Cut on the red lines. Fold on the black dotted line...
Glue the second cardboard onto the first. Align the tops and sides. That allows the second cardboard to be 1/2" longer on the bottom edge.
