Step 1

Choose your design, choose something that will fit into the middle of the case. Trace around your design with a marker so you can see where to place the scooby doo wire. The design I have chosen is a heart decorated with pink, purple and red embellishments, making this an ideal Valentine's craft.

Step 2

Now that you have the outline of your design you going to put jewel glue over the traced out design. Try make a nice even spread of glue as close on the lines as you can.

 bend it into the shape of your design. I have bent mine into a heart shape For Valentine's Day. As you work your way around the heart you can use a pliers or something with a bit of weight to hold it in place as you bed the scooby doo.

Keep working your way around the heart shape till you have reach the end of the heart.
