Use 3 Strands of white yarn 28" long on a yarn needle. Weave the 3 strands all at once around the perimeter so that the ends come out on the right side. Do not tighten. Just tie in a bow.
Now finished as a coaster. Make several in different colors!
Now to make the Picture frame. Using the lid as a template, trace and cut out a circle of thin cardboard and a picture the same size. You need to cut inside the line you made. You may have to trim it to fit.
Glue the picture to the cardboard. If you are using a photograph, you can use acid free paper and two faced tape if you wish. Tuck the picture into the lid face up so that the image is not covered by the plastic.
Then lay the lid face up on the coaster which should be laying down right side down. Then draw up the 3 strands of yarn to tighten around the rim of the lid. Tie a bow. Glue the magnet to the back.
