I admit, I LOVE all things floral! In fact you could say it’s a bit of an obsession. And because of this, I can’t ever get enough of the things Kim creates with flowers! She seems to work these beautiful blooms into every project she makes and it has me swooning every single time! Today’s DIY shadow box project is no exception. It’s the perfect Spring home decor piece that your walls or entry table are screaming for! And I love that you can customize it to fit your own tastes and color scheme. So pretty!
I love changing out all the frames on my gallery wall from time to time. Every season I want to change things up a bit and now that it’s Spring, the new Bloom collection comes to mind with all the pretty flowers and butterflies. I created a few framed pieces here with some of the papers from the collection and just a few embellishments. It really is a fun way to highlight some of your favorite papers. For these I glued and glittered the edges first before I adhered them to white cardstock using pop dots. It never hurts to add a little sparkle!
For the square shadow box I created a small bouquet of flowers and added some of the fun flower stickers and my own little floral sketch. You could easily add small photos or other memorabilia to your frame as well. Whenever I see shadow box frames on sale I grab one for projects like this.
The other frame was made in the same way. I just added a floral piece that I drew, a few stickers and some craft flowers. My intention at some point is to add photos and give these as gifts. I love the shadow boxes because you can add things inside like bows, pom poms and other little cute things. They are so versatile.
Some other cute and creative uses for shadow boxes are >>
>> Make a collage of your son or daughter’s artwork and use some of the collection papers in coordinating colors. Add a few toys inside to go along with the collage!
>> Use subtle papers for a background and pin something sentimental inside like a doll’s shirt or little boy’s toy in the center.
>> Fill a 12×12 shadow box with a scrapbook page and add other fun things inside.
There are so many possibilities and it’s fun to play around and switch them out from time to time. My niece loves to create little projects that can be displayed on her bedroom walls!
Have fun working with the new Bloom collection!
Happy Thursday Friends!
