2.) Using a flat head screwdriver pry the front cover off. (It will take some elbow grease)

3.) Measure the width and height of the screen.

4.) Cut a piece of Plexiglas to cover the photo you choose to put in the frame. (I got my Plexiglas from an old 8×10 frame I bought at the thrift store.)

    I love this idea IF you have an old Etch-A-Sketch that is no longer being used. But I have to tell you that I was in A store to get a birthday present and I saw an Etch-A-Sketch there. It was very nostalgic. I told my daughter “Hey look, an Etch-A-Sketch, she would love that”. Oh yeah, she does. It ONLY cost me $14.99 + tax. So I will be looking for one at the flea market or garage sales. Don’t get me wrong, I completely LOVE THIS IDEA!!! With all my heart!
