For today’s post, I am sharing a sweet little shadowbox I made for my cousin’s upcoming wedding. Her theme is tandem bicycles –I lucked out and found a miniature tandem bicycle that really works (well, if you were say, the size of a hamster – but you get the point!) The little photo mat is perfect for her first picture with her hubby-to-be!
I used a LOT of different adhesive products on this project -
The background paper was adhered to the box backing using Adhesive Sheets – the edge to edge coverage was important – I don’t want the sky falling off once its hung in her house! The various hills behind the bike were adhered with either the MyStik™ Permanent Strips Dispenser or 3D Foam Squares – depending on what level of dimension I was going for. The moss at the bottom was adhered to the background using Crafty Power Tape (the extra strength is perfect for holding tough-to-adhere items like the moss)
Most of the elements were adhered using 3D Foam Squares. After all, it is a shadowbox – what fun is it if it doesn’t have TONS of dimension?
I adhered the little banner to the outside of the box – in order to allow it to ‘float’ over the rest of the scene (and not interfere with the photo once it is added). I also used 3D Foam Squares to add to the “floating” effect.
