Make a really special Thank You for a Really Special Person

When an occasion calls for an extra special Thank You, make this shadow box for the recipient and maybe you’ll even get a thank you for your thank you!

Make the Thank You Shadow box:

  1. Collect a grouping of 12×12 Scrapbook papers that compliment each other. Solids (like the great colors you’ll find from Bazzil Basics and patterns from Imaginisce)
  2. Find a shoe box (or other box) with a removable lid.
  3. Cover the box and cover with fabulous papers. Go ahead, get wild and crazy mixing up the solids and patterns!
  4. On the Cricut—with the Accent Essentials cartridge—cut four (4) flower shapes for each bloom you want. There are seven (7) in this project, so there is a total of 28 variously shaped and sized flowers you will need here.
  5. Assemble four (4) pieces on the end of a pipe cleaner, using tacky glue to secure each layer. You will have seven (7) flowers total. (You may make more or less to your heart’s desire)
  6. Make a cone out of a piece of paper. This will be your vase.
  7. Going through the small hole in the cone, tape your flowers to the inside of the “vase”.
  8. Use double stick foam or other heavy duty tape to secure the vase to the inside of the box.
  9. Sign the lid, and you’re done!
