Embroidery:

Upload the files FSL Battenberg Christmas Ornament Set and FSL Battenberg Lace Bow into the machine. Embroider them following the instructions.

Rinse the stabilizer and leave the stitch-outs to air dry.
Embellish the stitch-outs with beads, crystals or rhinestones (optional).

Assembly of the Bells:

Sew the bells' sides together, using thread of a matching color.
If you going to use small ball ornaments for the inside of the bells, remove the ball's cap with wire. Insert the wire through the top of the bell.

Assemble the bow, following the directions.

Preparing the Frame:

Remove the back and the glass. Unscrew the picture holders and re-attach them to the top of the frame at the back. 2 of the holders should point downwards. They should be positioned an equal distance from each side. The 3 other holders should point upwards and should be spread out on the top of the frame.
