Shadow box flower garden 2.1

I remember I had this awesome shadow box tucked away under the stairs and decided it would be fun to make a shadow box flower garden for Spring. I grabbed a few craft supplies and got busy.

I used some flowers, brads, ric-rac, leaf pins, paper butterflies, and a small banner.

I started with different types and sizes of flowers then added a yellow brad to the center of each. I secured them to the padded back using a glue dot in the center of each flower. They hold well but they’re also easy to get off this surface when I want to change it.

Then it was time to add the green ric-rac for the stems. I also used glue dots to secure the ric-rac on the top and bottom of the stem.

My favorite thing was when I realized I had these sweet leaf pins. They were perfect for the stems.

Next I added these dictionary butterflies I made a few years ago. I secured them with glue dots in the center of each butterfly and lifted the wings up a bit to make it dimensional . I still really love these butterflies!

Then I added the banner. I wish I could remember the scrapbook paper company this banner came from.

I secured the banner with pretty stick pins.

Here it is with the shadow box open so you can see it a little better. I think it turned out really cute, especially since I only used things I already had in my craft room. Now I need to get the rest of my Spring and Easter things out.

You are so good at creating cute things using supplies you already have. I need to be better at doing that too. So fun!
