    Is there a way to print these directions? They're adorable, thanks for sharing!

      Click and drag to highlight the instructions and hit "copy image". Then open a word doc and when you are in, hit "paste". You should get the photos, too. But, they might be big so if you want them smaller, click on the image and you will see little "bubbles" on the corners and in the center of each sides and top and bottom. Place your curser on the corner bottom and drag it toward the opposite corner. Your image will get smaller. When you are done, hit exit, it will ask you if you want to save changes. Click yes, name it and you can print it out. Hope that helps!!
