I have seen shadow boxes on Pinterest, Facebook and other demonstrator blogs a lot lately. I wanted to make one, but had no idea how to do it. Then a fellow demonstrator, Mary Ann Rossiter, put directions on Facebook and I was so excited! Once I saw the directions, it really wasn't hard to make at all.
Here are the pictures she posted on how to make the shadow box. I started with a 8 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of card stock.
Aren't her directions wonderful!!! I was so thankful that she shared those with everyone. I need to figure out how to put words on my pictures like Mary Ann did. One step at a time.
I decorated the Dapper Denim frame with the stamp set Falling Flowers and Gorgeous Grunge inked in Dapper Denim. The sentiments are from the stamp set Flourishing Phrases and I used the Decorative Label and Classic Label punches. I also used Bitty Butterfly, Elegant Butterfly and Pansy punches and Swirly Scribbles and Flourish framelits/thinlits to decorate the frame. I used the 2016-2018 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack.
To make this project you need the following materials:
Dapper Denim Card Stock #141414
- cut at 8 1/2" x 8 1/2"
In Color Designer Series Paper Stack (Sweet Sugarplum) #141408
- cut at 3 1/2" x 3 1/2"
Scraps in the following colors:
- Dapper Denim #141414
- Night of Navy #100867
- Sweet Sugarplum #141418
- Whisper White #100730
- Wild Wasabi #108641 - I used this also for the mate on the sentiments.
I added a little bling with Rhinestones on the butterfly and flowers.
Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
