Shadow Box Love...


Look what I made...

My inspiration...


Modern Hot Pink Hearts
{via Artisteboheme on etsy.com}

How I did it...
{because you can too!}


You need a shadow box
I got mine at Michaels with coupons, it was about $8.

You also need a shape punch.
This one is Martha Stewart.
 My Birthday is on St. Patricks Day... {note to you}



Mark your paper.
See those little pencil marks above the ruler?
That is where the shamrocks will go.
It looks best if they are evenly spaced.
Just measure & divide.



Cut out your desired shape with the punch.
I used different colors of scrapbook paper.
One color would look nice too.



Bend the edges up a little to give each clover demention.
I used glue dots to adheare them to each pencil mark.



Then just slip your paper inside the shadow box.
Ta-da!
