Hello! A few years ago I created and sold these little fairytale shadowbox kits. They were created using the heart shaped shadowboxes that are currently in the shop.
The shadowboxes each have a little round box in which you can create a scene of any type you wish to, and then insert them into the heart. This particular scene was brought about with the theme of a fairytale happy ending in mind. At the end of this post I'll share the images I used to create the little scene. But you simply size the photos to fit, print them on cardstock.
First, you will want to paint your heart, and cover the front with some sort of paper. I used a flocked wrapping paper on the front of mine, but you could use cardstock, vintage wallpaper, scrapbook paper, or whatever you would like. After your box is dry, you will want to cut out the castle scene and glue into the back of the box.
For the prince and princess, cute them out and leave approximately a .5" flap at the bottom. Fold that down and glue it into the bottom of the box towards the front. This will allow you to have the 3d effect.
Clip some paper roses and posies and glue them into the box as well. Add some extra sparkle using either glass glitter or Stickles. I also embellished the castle a bit with Stickles glitter as well. The glitter just adds to the whole magical feel of a fairytale.
Insert your scene into the heart, with the window in place. (or leave the plastic window out if you prefer)
I can imagine all sorts of things you could do with the little shadowboxes! For those of you that have ordered them, I would love to see what you create!
Happy crafting, Cerri
