A fun little project for a rainy day.
Take a few matchbox trays, cover the inside back with vintage wallpaper, pretty paper, vintage sheet music or even dress patterns and adorn each with a little trinket. This can be anything..a broken hair clip, a part of a toy, diamante brooch, favourite button..the possibilities are endless.
Add some glitter and glue each component together. Its best to do this in a few stages, so that they stay together easier. We glued together three pieces at a time, held with pegs until dry, then pieced together with another three and so on.
Attach a ribbon as a hanger, either by glue or by mini pegs as I have done. Voila...A fun, cheap and cheery shadow box to brighten up your day. The best part is the shadow box can be as small (one piece) or as large as you like.
Happy crafting :) Tam
p.s. can you tell which ones India made??
