Instructions
1. Measure 6 inches up one of the ties, starting at the pointy tip. Make a cut at the 6-inch mark. Repeat with the other necktie.
3. Using the embroidery floss and embroidery needle, sew a design onto each necktie. You can stitch a simple shape, such as a heart, or letters, such as initials.
4. Apply super glue to the back side of one of the neckties, attaching it to the photo album. Press firmly to make sure it is secure. Repeat with the other necktie.
5. Apply super glue to the back of the necktie that overhangs the photo album.
6. Fold the overhanging part of the necktie so it is tucked around the inside cover of the photo album. Press firmly to make sure it is secure. Repeat with the other necktie.
