Weekend Whimys: Shadowbox Frame

 We found these cute frames at the Mega Meet Scrapbook show in May. A company called Darcie’s makes them. It is made from multi-layered chipboard frames with an acrylic top. You can find them at www.darcie.com for $5-$10 Each.

First I  “Framed” the entire project using my DT’s to see what I wanted it tolook like and so I could see what space I was going to have to add my quote. Once it was framed I created a quote on my computer  and ran it through my printer.

Of course stamps would be a great way to add a quote but I didn’t have a stamp with the quotes that I wanted...soI did it the hard way!

Once I had the quote printed I Mod Podged the back and front layers to the frame and used my Basic Grey file set to sand the edges to get a clean look.

I then traced, cut, inked, and adhered all the layers that I had designed to get the look that I was wanting for my frame.

Once done with that, I stacked the separate pieces to create the shadowbox and added the clips to keep it together. I then added magnet strips to the back so I could use it as a magnet for my home.

I had so much fun making this and love the way it turned out!

We LOVE it so much that we thought we would do a Giveaway with one!
