Shadow Box


I completed this project earlier this month but was delayed posting as my
little garden of squash and zucchini began to produce so I have been super
busy making Zucchini Bread, Zucchini Relish and Squash Bread and
Butter pickles.
Saw one like this in a magazine and thought, "I bet I
can duplicate this".  Theirs was a metal box but this was created
using black presentation board and white  poster board.
Back and sides are cut from the black board and the front from the
poster board. You can make this any size you wish;
this one happens to be 10" x 10" and 1 inch deep.
Before assembling the shadow box, I glued burlap looking
paper to the back piece then attached the wire. The B was cut using
the Cricut Don Juan Cartridge set at 8 1/2 inches.  I layered several B's
 to strengthen, then attached with double pop dots. The vine,
rocks, sweet gum balls and pine cone are from the yard. Added
a silk flower and berries  and butterflies that were  purchased at  Michael's.
The sides of the shadow box are covered with scrapbook
paper that has a weathered wood look.
I am so pleased at how quickly this went together that I
am thinking of doing a set to reflect the four seasons.
Till next time.
