A Few of My Favorite Things

This is another project I had done for my stamping club.  I saw the template and directions for this shadow box in probably a 2006 issue of Somerset Studio  All the measurements and a how-to were included in that magazine.  The box is made of chipboard and covered with a preprinted paper that I inked and sanded.  I included buttons, beads, clock parts, charms, postage stamps, a stamped mini domino, and even a tag from Tazo tea and a diamond shape punched out of chocolate candy wrappers. 

All the items included represent things I like that have a personal meaning to me.  Some of the charms and beads I used I had been hanging onto for quite a while waiting for the perfect time to use them (like the Egyptian cat bead upper left and cat mask lower right).  The inside background of the box is lined with a plain white paper that I stamped a script text stamp on just to give more interest to the background.  The actual size of the box is only 6 1/4  x 5 1/4 inches.

Something very similar could be done easily with premade boxes like the Tim Holtz Idea-ology Configurations sets or even the 7 Gypsies Letterblock Printer Trays
