Bundle of Boy Shadow Box by Patty Folchert


Bundle of Boy Shadowbox
Spring wishes to you all, Patty here today to share a baby boy project with you.  Earlier this month I had the chance to play with the brand new Echo park/Hampton Art stamp Set- Bundle of Joy. I created a card for the Echo Park Blog Hop that was featured here on the blog. I remembered that I had a shadowbox in a light blue color that might match this collection, and sure enough it was a perfect match. So I created this altered shadowbox below for my son’s room using the Echo Park/Bundle of Joy Collection Pack and the matching stamp set.

The banner was stamped with three different stamps from the collection, the star, asterisk and duck. The stars were stamped in dark yellow onto the ledger paper side of the cutouts page then stamped again with the asterisk stamp in green ink. The pennants were cut from the green patterned paper, stapled onto twine and embellished with blue gemstones. The ducks were stamped in yellow ink onto white price tags and added to the banner with tiny blue gemstones added for eyes.
So don’t be afraid to snatch up a clearance shadow box and alter it! It can be easily transformed into a treasured d├ęcor piece for your home or an extra special gift for a friend or family member.
