  2. Bend the extra space at the base of the photo to create a stand to glue inside the bottom of the globe.
  3. Carefully curl photo to slide into globe.
  4. With your wooden skewer, place small dabs of Quick Grip glue in the bottom of the globe and mount the base to the glue.
  5. Let it dry for about 15 minutes. Repeat this process, placing the glue on the bottom of the back side of the small trees.
  6. Make sure you remove any wooden bases to the trees first with the wire cutters.
