Snowflake Shadowbox

Hello!  AJ here to share with you all a hand made holiday home decor piece.

AJOtto-Snowflake-1I had a friend give me the most fabulous canvas she created into a shadow box and it totally inspired me to try one of my own.  (On a much smaller scale!;)  I got this little canvas at the dollar spot eons ago and totally forgot about it- it had a kids cartoon frog on the front of it.  I quickly  covered the front, and prepped the bottom side, which I ended up using as my shadow box, which I then filled with glittered snowflakes!

AJOtto-Snowflake-2 To create the snowflakes, I used the 4 X 6″ Adhesive Sheets.  Pull back the yellow lining and place your card stock on the adhesive.  Burnish a bit then flip over.


Place your die, cutting side into the backside of the sheet and run through your machine.AJOtto-Snowflake-4Now you have a an adhesive backed die cut.AJOtto-Snowflake-5Pull the backing off, and place a 3D Foam Square in the middle.  This will allow you can adhere it to something later once covered with glitter.AJOtto-Snowflake-6Repeat with all three snowflakes, alternating glitter types, then layer one atop the other.AJOtto-Snowflake-7Lastly, I wanted it to have a little dimension, so I adhered the bottom snowflake with a DODZ™ 3D.

Off to make a few more for my mantle! enjoy!
