Doesn't stay together at all
I bought these to use at a child's fall party. We did a trial run at home before the party and I'm glad we did. Within 5 minutes of hanging the frame on our fridge, the magnet came off. Another five minutes and leaves began popping off. We ended up using a different craft at our party b/c I wasn't going to send kids home with something falling apart. Very Dissapointed!

Nice All Around!
These are very cute and easy to put together. I can¿¿¿t wait for the fall for my Sunday School class to make these.
For some reason these are not packed in individual kits like usual for O.T. I do like that there are only six kits in the unit. The Sunday School class I teach is small ¿¿¿ usually only 5 students ¿¿¿ so it will be really nice not to have a bunch of kits leftover. I have found that the kids DO remember the craft they did the year before and DO NOT want to repeat it. Also there are a lot of kits I¿¿¿d like to purchase for my own use that I do not buy because you must buy 12. I¿¿¿d really like O.T. to offer ¿¿¿Sampler Packs¿¿¿ where you could get 12 different kits to try out ¿¿¿ like ¿¿¿fall¿¿¿, ¿¿¿gingerbread¿¿¿, ¿¿¿Christmas¿¿¿, etc.
The leaves (and instructions) for each frame are packed together in a bag. The pattern is printed on the foam and not actually textured like I thought (although that would be nice O.T. Hint, hint!). For some reason there are three leaves you must punch out of foam. There is only a small adhesive dot on the leaves that does not hold for long. I will use foam glue when we all do the project in the fall.
The frames are loose in the bag. There is no ¿¿¿glass¿¿¿ or back. A 4x5 inch foam sheet fits the back perfectly if you do not mind it being a different color. A thin piece of clear plastic would really enhance the finished project.
The magnets are all together in one bag and are the same quality I have come to expect from O.T. While strong enough to hold a small foam magnet to the fridge it will not hold a photo frame well. I usually use my own and factor that in to the price per unit.
I would definitely buy a product like this from O.T. again.

'Bought these for the younger kids in our daycare so they could just stick the leaves on w/out requiring too much artistic effort. Unfortunately, the stickies on the back of leaves & magnetic strips arent's sticking at all. Only the leaves are individually pre-packaged; the frame & magnets come separate. No backing on the frame either! Doesn't seem worth the price to me ($6/set of 12).

Cute Picture Frame
I chose this picture frame because it was super cute and it had adhesive on the back. I was very disappointed with how small the amount of adhesive was on the back. I had to purchase glue dots in order for the leaves to stay on the frame, which was additional costs that I wasn't thrilled about paying. Otherwise, it was a cute project.

Must use glue!!
It pays to read the reviews 1st --which I didn't. The adhesive does not stick--period. I still would recommend these as a very nice frame--just plan on glueing down the leaves so that you will not be upset like I was and have to scamble at the last minute to fix them! We always take a picture of everyone who attends our Halloween party then send them home with the picture in a frame. These are nice even for older kids--but have hot glue or foam glue handy. There is very little adhesive and it dries out fast and all the leaves fall off.

the glue dots work ok but could use reinforcing - also this is a really fast craft so it does not take a lot of time to complete

Not Bad - But Must Use Glue
These are cute and easy for my kids to do but you must use glue! The leaves do have adhesive on the back but it doesn't stick. We hung the first one on our fridge and within 2 hours all of the leaves had popped off. We used the foam glue instead and everything was fine.
They are very cute when complete.

glue glue and more glue
These are very easy to make and super cute once they are put together but I didn't read the reviews before I bought them to know that the glue dots on the leaves are no good. I ended up putting them all together only to realize the next day that half of the leaves fell off. I then glued those leaves on and let dry for a couple of days. I then went to attach the pictures and realize the other half of the leaves fell off. So, just use glue the first time so you don't have to put them together two or three times. :)

cute, easy, but glue dots are not sticky
These were very easy for the students to make on their own, but the glue dots are very poor!! I ended up using glue to keep the leaves on!
