SHADOW BOXES with DESIGNER SERIES PAPER, RIBBON, and EMBELLISHMENTS

December 14, 2011

AS PROMISED, here are the various Shadow Boxes the gals made last Thursday evening at Jen’s Holiday Party.  All were made with the focal feature being the Merry Trees Décor Element, size small, $3.95, 121643, p. 229, Stampin’ Up!’s Idea Book & Catalog.  I got the shadow boxes, 8″ x 8″ and 10″ x 10″ square, black or white, from Joann’s.  Yes, I wiped out the supply they had on hand last Sunday. 

Andrea and I had created two nice looking samples the night before so the gals would have a clue where or how they might get started on their own shadow boxes.  Andrea’s on the left is 10″ x 10″ square and mine, the one on the right, is 8″ x 8″.

And now for the projects of the evening.  If I know for sure who made a certain shadow box I’ll label it.

I think this is Peggy’s.  Love her use of the retired DSP.   🙂  8″ x 8″

Amy created this shadow box going in a totally different direction from the others.  She used bits from the Christmas Lane Simply Scrappin’ Kit, 124007, p. 26, Holiday Mini Catalog.  8″ x 8″

This is a 10″ x 10″ framed shadow box.  Who???  Andrea might have made this one for Stacey who was out sick.  She sure missed some fun!

This is Christine’s 8″ x 8″ shadow box, also using last year’s Designer Series Paper.  She has excellent taste!  🙂

This is Jen’s 10″ x 10″ interpretation of Merry Trees

Haven’t these been FUN!?

All you need is some Designer Series Paper, a few ribbons and embellishments, like the Glimmer Papers in Red or Silver, and your Décor Element of choice.  It’s a pretty quick and easy project.

I hope you try it.
