The bigger challenge was the finding a way to display the photos. It started first with a vitamin bottles that were being discarded. I thought just putting a wood dowel in the center would be enough to display the pictures. Well I was proven wrong. There was not enough height so the photos could drape. You also couldn't spread the two points to far apart or the anchors would fall over.
So I will start with the vitamin bottles. I covered them with zebra paper I found in a local craft store. I couldn't find tiger stripes, so I colored in the white parts of the designer paper with my blendabilites!!! I love how they came out. Then I punched a hole in the top of the bottles with my crop-a-dile and put the wood dowel through the center. I put some hot glue where the dowel goes through the center to ensure it would not come out. I tied ribbon to hide the bottles top. I filled the bottle with rice. Then I sealed the bottle with hot glue so it would not open up.
Next came the bottom, I had these heavy duty cardboard paper rolls I got from a company I used to work at. Not sure where you can find anything like this. My goal was height, so if I didn't find these I was going to find card board boxes and decorate them. So the roll were covered with black cardstock. I attached it with sticky strip to keep it in place. Next came the rosettes. I scored two pieces of cardstock at one inch and attached the two pieces with my hot glue gun to make sure they stayed in place. Next came Daniel Tiger. I printed it out and cut it out with my circle framelits. Daniel was glued to the project with hot glue. Then I attached the rosette with the glue gun as well.

The two anchors were tied together with White & Tangerine Tango Two-Tone Trim. I tied them on top and I also pulled out my hot glue gun and applied the glue to make sure they do not come undone.
