Mini Shadow Box
Tomorrow, I am participating in the Jo-Ann Fabrics & Crafts Grand Opening in Sherman, Texas. I will be there for a Book Signing and Demo from 11:00–1:00. I’ll be instructing those in attendance how to create a beautiful paper rose to accent a gift tag or card for any celebration or special occasion. And with just a simple change in paper color these beautiful roses are perfect for any holiday. Come see me… it’s going to be fun!

Ok, so on to today’s project. I love shadow boxes of any kind and decided to create a mini shadow box tag for one of my projects for CHA. As I started gathering Maya Road supplies I came across a Maya Road Scallop Square Basic Album pack took out a chipboard and a kraft page and placed them on my work area. I tossed a new Maya Road Hexagon Chipboard piece and as it fell on top of a scallop square inspiration hit… I thought the Hexagon would make a perfect window for a shadow box.
The box is created using one Scallop Square Basic Album Kraft page and one Scallop Square Basic Album Chipboard page. To create the window, I attached a glittered chipboard Hexagon to the Kraft page with a liquid adhesive. Using a craft knife I cut and removed the kraft paper from inside the hexagon and bam an instant shadow box window.
I painted the shadow box with a JBS Acrylic Paint Dabber in Malted Milk. Once the paint was dry I covered the top of the Kraft square with Distress Crackle Paint in Clear Rock Candy. When this was dry I inked over the Crackle Paint with Distress Ink in Vintage Photo.
The sides of the shadow box are covered with the same silver glass glitter as the chipboard Hexagon. I then accented the shadow box using lots of Maya Road goodies… Pearl Bead Chain, a Chandelier Bead, Latte Brown Twine Cording, a Vintage Feathered Friends, an Alterable Bingo Calendar Numbers, some Tu-Tu Tulle Ballerina Pink, an Antique Skeleton Key, some Vintage Paper Roses and a Vintage Findings Mama’s Doily.
I think this would make a wonderful holiday shadow box ornament for any Christmas tree. You can bet I will be making a few this holiday season.
Hugs and hope I see you at Jo-Ann Fabrics & Crafts tomorrow!
