Woodware: Itty Bitty Shadow Box House


Once again, the Woodware Team are playing along with the challenge over on the Mirror Crack’d blog. This time the theme is shadow boxes. Finally, I have the perfect time to use one of my hoarded wooden embelly boxes from Woodware. You know, the ones that tiny safety pins, or bells, or brad fasteners come in?

I painted mine with black acrylic paint, measured the "window" panes, and marked it out on a piece of Crafty Cardworks Time Flies 8" square paper pad. I inked in black and stamped the Stampendous Perfectly Clear Family Home image and sentiment, colored it with markers, and cut out to fit my little openings.

After adhering them inside, I used a ZIG Glue Pen to adhere Stampendous Color Fragments in Fresh Green, Powder Blue, and Canary. I used one of the flower pop outs from the Time Flies Essentials pack as a sun by coloring it yellow, bending the petals up, and adhering it inside. More Color Fragments were added inside of my little "sun". 

I happened to have one of the old Stampendous chipboard/clipboards which was the perfect size for my project, and provided the perfect way to give it more of a solid base. The clip was covered in Black StazOn ink, and heated to set the ink more permanently on the slick surface. A small Woodware Key Brad Fastener was also covered in  black ink, and adhered inside the shadow box.

The chipboard was covered in more of the Time Flies papers, with a matting of black cardstock. The shadow box was adhered on top, with little pop out flags tucked underneath. Finally, a scrap of the yummy cotton ribbon from Woodware was tied to the clip as the finishing touch. I just love the tiny cuteness of it! I still have three more of these little boxes saved for more tiny cuteness, or something more artsy-fartsy!

Remember to visit the rest of the Woodware team as we each play with this challenge, and head over to the Mirror Crack'd blog for more great ideas!
