Valentine Picket Fence Picture Frame Craft Kit
Cute Valentine Photo Keepsake
I am a daycare provider, and I made these for the parents with their child's photo in each. They loved them - a big hit. And they were really easy to assemble. They come with self-adhesive strips, which seemed pretty sticky, but I still fortified everything with a little bit of hot glue.

Girl Scouts loved them but turns out that 4 of the packages had the main stick "I Love You" missing from the packages. I could understand a missing part here and there but 4 in one order! My own daughters did not get to do this due to shortages.

The sticks to this kit were either warped, cracked, or had the printing smeared.. The ribbon was not as pictured, but a piece of red cord. The flower hearts did not stay adhered to the wood. Basically, when completed, they fell apart. The adhesive was not adequate.
Should be a notation to use hot glue to put this together, otherwise it falls apart.

Sweet finished product but it has it's problems
I bought these for my daughter's 1st grade valentine's party.
Luckily we did a sample at home prior to the party. Some pieces don't have the self adhesive on them. Both the I love you and a whole bunch pieces are suppose to have them. Some packages have adhesive on both, some don't. We bought glue dots and made it work. Also, I would recommend buying extra packages. Some packages were missing pieces, and some had pieces broken. The writing in red was also worn off in some parts on numerous pieces. Probably could be fixed with a red marker. That being said, the finished poduct does look sweet, but you have to realize you need some extra materials such as the glue and have extra materials for those parts missing or damaged.

Super Cute Craft!
This craft was a big hit for my son's 2nd grade classroom! My only caution is check every package for the proper supplies. Several were missing things. Luckily I had enough extra; but could have been a problem.

I bought these for my daughter's 2nd grade class as a Valentine's project. They are easy to assemble. The adhesive for the sticks is not sufficient so used Elmer's glue but that worked great. I ordered two units and only received one but when I called, the customer service was very helpful and shipped the other set out as promised and also added an extra gift for the delay. Great customer service!

Relatively easy craft for 3rd graders. However, the 2 sided tape that I thought would eliminate the need for glue was difficult to remove the backing from. Some kids who were more independent started to peel the backing off and took the tape with it, so it took a little longer than planned.

This item is cute but some of the pieces were missing to complete all 12 frames. The back of the items were suppose to have sticky glue but quite a few had glue in the wrong places or none at all.
If you order this product I would recommend buying extra and having a bittle of glue on hand. Also leave out one of the fence parts to fit a bigger picture into the frame. If you follow the frame directions the picture is odd size and to small.
All in all the end result was cute but regular pop. sticks would have also worked.
*When I emailed Oriental Trading to tell them about the missing frame parts they immediately sent out a new package free of charge.
