Joining miter joints

Does anyone know how to join a miter joint with the kreg tool?  i know how to make a picture frame by putting the screws on the face of the board.  i can use it on butt joints on the inside of the box to hide the screws but i want to miter the corners and still hide the screws.  i can take pics if i need to.See More
