This frame and all those boxes came flat, she put together all the boxes and the pieces of the frame. Then she painted the entire project, YES even the insides of the boxes. It's hard to see in the picture, but the numbers are on small punched out circles and have crystal effects on them, a great touch. The angels are cut out and glued on, there are lots of embellishments on this project. Kathie, I think you did a Great JOB!!! Love it.
