Hello! I guess I could have saved one Halloween card for you today, but they are all done and I even put away all the stamps and supplies. So, instead ... today, I will be showing you the project I made for my friend Donna for her birthday. I gave it to her on Saturday on her birthday and she loved it! It is a shadowbox about friendship and I filled each cubby hole with all kinds of stuff. I loved creating it. It was so much fun. I have a bunch of pics to show you. But, let me first give you a couple of links so you can see what I started with. (Yes, I should have taken before pics, but I didn't!) The box is a Tim Holtz product that you can see here, the tissue tape is also his, seen here , and the metal feet, seen here. (Note, I used Scrapbook.com for the links, but I didn't order my products online, I got them at The Crafty Scrapper, but I wanted you to have a visual.) The set of papers I used were from Bo Bunny, seen here. Let's get to my pics. I have close-ups of every angle and every cubby hole. Enjoy!
|I used a little acrylic piece that I had at my store to hold price tags ... gotta think out of the box!|
|Flower & Butterfly are dies from My Favorite Things. Tim Holtz Memo Pin holds sentiment.|
|Life is good was a brad embellishment and bottle has pretty glitter!|
|Butterfly is held in place with 10 round pop-up dots behind it! More embellishments from my stash!|
|Middle sections. The Banner is a die. And the letters were made with Rub-Ons from Making Memories.|
|Close-up (even though I don't like my pic), look at the creativity of adding the photo instead!|
|Clear beads added to bottle, with flower and memo pin. Friends circle was a snap embellishment.|
|A clipboard I cut smaller and attached to a wood block for support, a few embellishments from my stash and a music die from My Favorite Things.|
|Tiny Spools I added twine to, Word Beads and Mini Scrabble Letters from my stash, Butterfly die from Stampin' Up.|
|I made a box to put her real gift in (small set of butterfly dies from TCP). I am thinking she can use it as a hiding spot. Butterfly die from Stampin' Up.|
I also want to note that all the sentiments I did on the computer and cut out and adhered to cardstock. My cardstock is too thick to run thru my printer so this is how I do it. I have to check who makes that banner die, as where I got it escapes me right now. I will check and let you know. I hope you enjoyed all the pics! I would love to hear from you, so add a comment and let me know what you think!
I will be back in a day or two with my next class share. See you then!
