Baby Girl Nursery Shadow Box

Teresa Collins Baby Boutique I love this cartidge. I created this quick and fun project you will only spend th 5.00 on the frame and 2 sheets of white cardstock, a piece of ribbon, sequins, and Viva Decor Pearl Pens. I always need a present that speaks volumes and is quick to make. as a designer, teacher, author, and mother, I stay super busy and making presents for friends that take hours to create is just not in my time budget anymore. So this project is for all those out there like me. I hope you are having an amazing Easter.

 

 

 

Baby Girl Shadow Box
To create the shadow box uses a 5.5×5.5 shadow box from Ikea. Cut out the background paper which is the girl words paper in the square shape with the rounded edges at 6.0 inches and attach to the bottom part of the frame. This will be larger than the frame trim off the excess. Cut the scallop shape from the cartridge at 5 inches and attach to the girls word paper on pop dots. Cut the baby carriage out in layers at 4.5 inches add pop dots to the different layers to create a 3 dimensional effect center the carriage in the middle. Finishing touches add the Viva pearl pens in salmon to the stroller and the frame. To step it up add the ribbon around the inner edge and then the sequins trim. I also added the pearl pens to the centers of the sequins. That’s it I would love to see what you do with Teresa’s new baby Cartridge. I love making cute little gifts for the mommy to place in the baby’s room. I love how the designs are sweet but still have the vintage elegance I love.
Have a great day,
