3D Shadow Boxes
Dana here! I'm excited to share with you another Home Decor project featuring this month's January Tres Jolie’s Scrapbook kit! This kit has some gorgeous papers from 3 Quarter Designs "Christmas Wonderland" collection!
This kit is jam-packed with beautiful papers, chipboards and beautiful flowers from Prima Marketing and Little Birdie! What I really love about this kit is they added 2 A-4 Diecut sheets of images you can punch out and use on so many different projects! And of course the fun fussycut elements sheets to use.
Today's project we'll be creating 3 Shadow Boxes (which I purchased at my local craft store) These papers have a nice wintery feel and so you could display these shadow boxes, not only during the holidays but throughout the winter season.
To begin this project, I took a paintbrush and Folkart Matte Wicker white acrylic paint (in my stash) and applied to the both the inside, outside panels on each box, including along the front edge. I also applied some paintalong the inside corners of my box.
I will be inking all of my papers including my fussycut images with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Gathered Twigs (from my stash)
I chose a 12x12 paper from the kit, and cut 3 squares measuring 4 &1/4 inches. Adhere to the inside back panel of each box.
Next I chose some images from the elements sheets and fussy cut out a variety of images including some punched out pieces from the A-4 Diecut sheets. I also fussy cut 3 different storefront images from the Storefronts elements sheet. I applied some foam dots (from my stash) onto the back of the storefront pieces. Then I adhered to the bottom inside of my box.
Repeat for the other two boxes. Next I chose where I wanted to place my embellishments on my box.
Box 1: I fussycut the lamppost from the "clock" elements sheet, then adhered on the left side frame on my box. I added a elements sentiment above my storefront piece. I had some Gold Dazzle sticker stars in my stash, so I applied some over the star images on the storefront window. Then I applied some Stickles Diamond glitter around the windows, door and top of my storefront. Then I added some fake snow on the top of the storefront image and along the bottom inside ledge of my box. Lastly I glued the cute patterned bow (from the Diecut sheet) over my jute cord hanger at the top. I also twisted some irredisicent and blue chenille stems together and glued them along the top and bottom. Here's acouple closeups!
Box 2: I fussy cut a sentiment and using a bone folder, I curled both ends slightly and adhered above the storefront image. I also fussy cut the plaid ribbon image and blue button, both from the elements sheets.
I glued the ribbon onto the right side of my frame. The glitter Snowflake Diecut (from my stash) I adhered over the ribbon, then applied foam dots to the back of the button image and adhered on top of the Snowflake Shape. I added a cute Snowflake button on the top! Then applied some Stickles Diamond glitter and fake snow as we did on the previous box, in addition to the chenille stems! I took one of the pretty blue flowers and glued at the top! Here's acouple closeups!
Box 3: I fussy cut 3 bubbles and HoHo Ho sentiment from the elements sheets. I punched out another bow from the A-4 sheet. I adhered the sentiment at the top. I covered each bubble with some epoxy dots from my stash, then adhered scattered above my storefront image. I applied some Stickles Diamond glitter and fake snow as before. Then I applied some Liquid pearls in Rouge (from my stash) to the wreath to resemble berries. I glued my chenille stems in place and glued the bow at the top! Here's a closeup!
Now your Shadow Boxes are ready to hang and enjoy for years to come!
