Sizzix Triple Play Blog Hop: Week 4 - Birthday Wish Shadow Box Frame

It's Thursday, and that means it's time for the Sizzix Triple Play Blog Hop! This week, we are using a Frame and Frame Back with Stand ScoreBoard Pro Die from my friend Eileen Hull. This die has many frame and accent options to mix and match!

Now on to my project!



I like to make home decor items, so I decided to turn the frame components into a wall hanging shadowbox. Using the Brook Collection from Crate Paper I covered the frame pieces in different patterned papers and stacked everything together using a large and small jewelry box as the bases for the shadow boxes.



Since is a Birthday themed wall hanging featuring my friend Karyn's daughter, Mallory I used the accent flower stem and leaf as the candle and flame. My friend Doris created the Ladybug cake, so we had to take a before and after photo of the cake - the only thing left of the Ladybug was her head, but she was delicious!



I used Pop Up Glue Dots on a Roll to "pop" up the layers giving the piece more depth. And since I love to distress most everything I make I inked all the edges of the frame pieces with Clearsnap Color Box Fluid Chalk Ink in Chestnut Roan. I embellished with some twine, rhinestones and buttons. The framed shadow boxes are hanging from a lenght of 1.5" Apple Green grosgrain ribbon from May Arts that I pleated by scrunching it as I ran it through my sewing machine.
