This is probably my favourite project I have made so far in my short time as a Stampin Up! Demonstrator. I cannot take credit for the original idea as that came from a very clever lady called Sam who has a you tube channel called "mixed Up Craft". All I did was play with the measurements and turn her box into a frame for my use.
I was really blown away by Sam's clever tutorial and think that how she put the frame together is absolutely genius as it makes life so much easier. If you have ever tried to make a shadow box you will know how tricky it can be the stick those corners in! Well with this shadow box you don't need to worry about that at all!
Take a look at the tutorial below. And don't forget to check out Sam at Mixed Up Craft's channel - she has some lovely projects.
Dimensions and product details for my project are, as ever, below.
