Project #2 Mixed Media Shadow Box

*note* I will post the artful inspiration later this afternoon.

Here is a little tutorial we came up with for you guys.. A Mini Shadow Box. Enjoy!!

Supplies: a Tin, Fabric, Paper, Felt, Pop Dots, Misc Embellishments

1. Cut a piece of fabric about 2" wider than your tin on each side.

Taking one side, fold the edge in, and then up to the top of the tin. glue.

Do this with the opposite side.

with your next side, Do the same thing,

And then glue the corners down.

Repeat with the last remaining side. You should now have a tin covered in pretty fabric. :)

2. Time to start cutting out you shapes. You want to glue in the very back layer first.

For me, it was the hills in the distance.

Glue the next layer down. (tree stumps.) You will want to start using some pop dots to give it dimension.

Next I added in the tops of the trees, popping some further out with pop dots. and a felt deer.

Add in any other embellishments you want, I found some miniature plastic trees, so I glued them to the tin.

And Lastly, Glue a pretty ribbon or fabric scrap around the edges.

Please send me a link to pictures if you do this, I would love to see how yours turns out. :)

xoxo, Taylor and Katie
