Darcie's Shadow Box = COOL!

This week I reviewed Jenni Bowlin Farmer's Wife collection, including the red diecut journaling spots, AND Darcie's Shadow box over at Serendipity Scrapbooks. I have a mini I made that I will post later this week.

These Darcie's Shadow Boxes are really cool! In this package, you will receive THREE different size shadow boxes. You do need to cut, score and glue them together but Darcie's provides you with wonderful, color, step-by-step instructions. And this box only took me a little over an hour to put together! that is not bad for this little treasure I have now to share with my husband. I would DEFINITELY recommend these. And did I mention you get THREE in a box?

The entire box comes in the package, you just need to cut it out, score it and then adhere it according to the directions. I used glimmer mists on part of it and covered the rest with pattern paper. You could the same or even use stamps on here since this is light weight chipboard.

I accented the our Anniversary Date on the calendar.

I chose to make a the 5.5" x 6.5" box and did a little something for our anniversary coming up in june. I used the Jenni Bowlin Farmer’s Wife collection and the red calendar journal spots.



This detail shot allows you to see the folding involved and where it needs to be covered with paper or something else. You could also leave parts of it white if it matched your project since these are great quality.
