Make a mini shadowbox
The DT @ Practical Scrappers have been sharing some of their favorite projects each week, and today is my turn to share. I love to use my scrappy supplies to make small altered objects to display around the house. One of my favorite projects is a small shadowbox I made a couple of years ago, using a little wooden box that I picked up at Michael's for about $1.
I had another one of these wooden boxes in my stash, so I decided to use it for a mini shadowbox of my granddaughter, using a photo from Easter. I used some Crate Paper word stickers to make the word collage for the right side of the box. This time I painted the box pink and then sponged over all of it with white. I spread clear adhesive around the front edges of the box and covered it with chunky clear glitter. I added a ribbon and lace box, a couple of flowers and a chipboard heart as embellishments.
These are so cute and easy to display because they don't take up much space, and the cost is minimal. I hope you're inspired to make your own mini shadowboxes!
