    You can make any design you like inside your wooden picture frame! Here’s how to create a face. Look closely at the shape of your face. Use your fingers to feel your eyes, nose, mouth, ears, and eyebrows. Make different expressions. Smile big! Frown, gasp in surprise, look silly, scary, and excited. Notice how parts of your face change.
