Hello Spooky Friends!
My name is Kat, and I am the guest designer for the month of October. I am so excited to share with you the awesome and spooky cute crafts I have created using the “Magical and Mischievous” collection. The first project I wanted to conjure was a shadow box/memory keeping box.
I adore shadow boxes because they are tiny time capsules that capture your work of art and simultaneously displays it in a bootiful fashion. For this shadow box I wanted to merge scrapbooking with it as well.
I love this ghoulish picture of my Wolfie and I, and I really wanted to capture the magic of it and preserve it for years to come. The “Magical and Mischievous” collection paired so beautifully with it and showcased the whimsy of this moment.
I started off with a 6x6 shadowbox (you can purchase them at any hobby store) and cut out a square of my favorite patterned paper, the super spooky cute pumpkin pail with sweet treats. I glued this to the backboard of the frame. I printed out the photo 2 ½ x 3 ½ and added 6 layers of foam squares to give it dimension. Tilting your image gives it even more whimsy.
I then picked some ephemera pieces from the collection, two candies, a lollipop, the black bat, and the Halloween word. I propped these up with 6 layered foam squares cut to size. This allowed all my pieces to be the same dimensional size. I paired the collection with some paper roses to finish off the inside of the memory shadow box.
Finally, for the exterior of the box I added some ruffled trim in blush to complete my Spooktacular memory shadow box. I added the trim using hot glue. Incorporating fun elements, such as trim, gives your projects textures that bring it life.
I hope you also create your very own “Magical and Mischievous” memory shadowbox this Halloween season. Bring a little spooky cute into your crafty space or office desk. Stay spooky cuties!
