  • 1.

    Crayola Neon Color Explosion lets you create shockingly bright colors on colored paper. Have fun making your favorite designs on the front and back sides of 2 different pieces of Neon Color Explosion Paper using Neon Color Explosion Markers.

  • 2.

    Measure and mark one-inch strips going across the width of the paper (from long side to long side). Use Crayola Scissors to cut the designed papers into 1-inch-wide strips.

  • 3.

    Fold each strip in half, bringing the ends together. Open.

  • 4.

    Fold each end in to the middle crease. Fold the two halves together so the ends are inside. Repeat the folding steps until you fold every strip.

  • 5.

    To start building the frame, slide the flaps of one piece into the slots formed by the folded ends of another piece. Pull so they are snug.

  • 6.

    Next tuck another piece into this one, but going in the opposite direction.

  • 7.

    Keep tucking folded pieces into each other. You can be creative with this frame! Try different ways of tucking. You can always take them apart and try a new way.

  • 8.

    When you form a square of 3 nested pieces, add one on to the side to form the next square. Repeat this three times.

  • 9.

    Finally, tuck in the last piece and… you’re done! Just add a photo and maybe a few pieces of magnet tape on the back and you’re ready to make your mom smile!
