Step 5: Assembling your artwork
Begin by putting the LaserPaper into the picture frame, adding the acrylic circles onto the engraved areas on the paper, smallest to smallest and so on. Make sure to align each of them to the center.
To make the picture more stable we put the thin plasitc sheet behind the LaserPaper. Once this is done your finished Easter decoration is ready.
