Hello friends! Welcome to the Spellbinders Becca Feeken Shadowbox Blog Hop! I am so happy you’re here! You should have come from Hussena Calcuttawala‘s blog, and after me, you will go to Tina Smith‘s blog.
For my project I decided to make a shadowbox frame to highlight the cutest little baby footprint. It’s my youngest daughter’s footprint, and she is now 2. We moved into our new home about 6 months ago, and we haven’t done much decorating yet. I was pulling out baby frames, and I was feeling nostalgic.
You can find all the new Shadowbox dies by Becca Feeken here. For my project, I used the Adjustable Shadowbox Frame with 3/4″ Border dies, Callista Rectangle Shadowbox Frame dies, and Flutter Wing Shadowbox Butterflies dies.
I put together my frame using some aqua colored cardstock. I made the frame to the size 4 x 4 inches. Spellbinders has a tutorial on how to assembles the shadow box on their youtube channel here. I tried making one with scraps of cardstock first, and I was all thumbs. However, I got the hang of it on my second try.
I scanned the footprint, and in photoshop, I added the date. I printed it out onto white cardstock, then I hand wrote her name. I trimmed it to 4 x 4″, and I adhered it to the back of the frame using scortape.
To add some interest, I die cut the 2 corner pieces from the Callista Rectrangle shadowbox frame dies twice, so that I had a total of 4 pieces. I carefully tucked them into the corners between the frame and the footprint print, and added a little bit of liquid glue. I also die cut the butterflies from the Flutter Wing Shadowbox butterflies dies with light pink cardstock, and glued them to the front of the frame. I die cut the center body piece twice, and glued them on top of each other for more dimension. I also made sure to fluff the wings for dimension.
This project turned out so cute. I love how it looks hanging in my office. I just added a tiny command strip to the back to attach it to the wall. Since it’s all made of paper, it doesn’t weigh much at all.
