Hi there! I hope everyone is enjoying warmer weather like I am. This happens to be the most favorite time of year for me, lounging in the pool, reading books, gardening and cooking out. But I still have time to craft and I want to share a project I created using a few of Eileen Hull’s diecuts and thinlits. This month’s theme over on Eileen Hull’s blog is using leftover bits and pieces and this project that I am getting ready to share is just that…a lot of leftovers. So lets get started!
I had one sheet of leftover cardstock from 49 and Market: Vintage Artistry Sage Collection and I thought that would make a great little shadow box (the cardstock is a heavy weight and is perfect for creating this box). I also had created a wedding album with this collection which you can find that post HERE.
I cut four of the smaller “frames” from the Shadow Box Frames Set 2 Thinlits, put together according to the directions and cut to fit a piece of cardstock for the back of the shadow box.
I always cut from whatever small scraps of cardstock I have leftover from previous projects leaves, flowers, etc. to have on hand. To me it’s one less step in cutting those out when in the middle of making something. The wreaths I had cut from the Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits.
I cut two a part and “wove” around the one not cut a part to make it look fuller.
I had also cut out a couple of leaf sprigs from the same wreath and snowflake thinlits and the flowers I cut from the Shadow Box Elements Thinlits. I adhered the wreath to the inside of the shadow box, shaped and glued the flower and leaves together, placed a gem in the center of the flower before adding a Foam Pop Dot to the back and placing in the center of the wreath.
I used hinges from the Treasure Box Diecut (retired) to dress up the corners of the shadow box. I also added gems to each corner of the hinges to finish off the box.
