Back in August, I was approached by Graphic 45 about some new products they were developing. Shadow boxes! They asked if I would design a sample project using each of the two styles of their shadow boxes. Since they have made their debut at CHA and are now available in stores, I can share this cool news.
Here's what they look like (photos taken from Scrapbook.com)...
The square ivory one measures 10" x 10" x 1.75" and has four 4" compartments and a clear sturdy acrylic panel in the back with swing clips for easy removal. You can layer photos or ephemera inside and behind the acrylic, and of course adorn the inner compartments with more photos and memorabilia for a beautiful keepsake. Hanging hardware is included in the package too.
The black one measures 14.25" x 6" x 1.75" and has three 4" compartments. And you can use it either vertically or horizontally.
I had fun creating this girlie shadow box using Botanical Tea, adding some altered items from the craft store in the cubbies. (And yes, that's my Jamie in the lower right corner.) :)
For my sample using the black shadow box, I decided to use it horizontally. I used the Typography collection and made a little keepsake of Paul and I.
This is a photograph of the packaging for the ivory shadow box. Pretty nifty, eh?
And here's a shot of the black shadow box. (Paul likes this one best. Wonder why...)
So, if you happen to purchase one of these fabulous shadow boxes, take a quick look at the packaging as you tear it off and give me a little "hello" before you throw it away. Okay?
Thanks for stopping in. Have a great day!
