Paper Cubed!! Shadow Box Challenge

Happy May Day and Happy Kentucky Derby Day to all my friends in Louisville!  We sure do miss the fun and excitement of the Derby.

I'm so excited to be a part of the very first PAPER CUBED aka P3 Challenge!!  This is a just for fun no cards allowed challenge blog.  We want to enourage you to think in 3D, wild, wonderful, out of the box...or maybe in the box...or on the box, or frame, or spool or package....now you get the idea!

Kim's first challenge for us is to create a shadow boxI went rummaging through my stuff...no time to go shopping and we're going to actually USE our stuff, right?  Here's what I came up with:


  1.  A Martha Stewart linen shadow box that I got on clearance at Michael's LAST year (sigh)
  2.  A spool of pearls and some crocheted lace that I picked up on clearance at JoAnn's
  3.  A beloved lace handkerchief from my drawer of things I don't use anymore but still love
  4.  Some of my handmade paper roses (these will be in my etsy store soon)
  5.  A paper rose from my stash
  6.  May Arts champagne silk ribbon...love that ribbon!
  7.  A butterfly from Michael's
  8.  Some yummy Webster's pages paper
  9.  A heart charm from my stash
10.  Chipboard circles (SU)
12.  Art Institute glitter
13.  Ivory acrylic paint

I thought this vintage look shadow box would also make a wonderful memory box for Mother's Day in addition to a wedding or anniversary.





Now here's the fun part...head on over to Paper Cubed to see what the rest of the Design Team has created to get your mojo going, then dive in and play with us.  You've got the whole month until 12 p.m., May 31st, so there's no pressure to hurry.  Winner will be announced on the 5th day following the close of the challenge.
