Shadow box


My shadow box started out as a flower box. The lid had an acetate window so you could see the beautiful silk flowers inside. I  removed the acetate and covered the inside with some lovely vintage paper from Craftwork Cards. I punched borders out of the same paper and added them to the outer edge of the box. I stamped all the sewing embellishments with a free stamp set from  a magazine and glued them to the inside of the box. I covered a body form using parts of a doily and plain paper. I used flowers and pearls to finish off my project. I'm glad I recycled the box and I am pleased at how it turned out.
I have entered my box into a few challenges listed below.
