My Weekend Projects

Here are a couple of things I've been working on over the weekend. These are for the Alice in Wonderland Shadowbox Swap. I have 4 different parts of pictures layered on top of each other to make a more dimensional look. Except for the rabbit, I forgot to order 4 sets of prints on him. (brain fart!)
These are the backings to the 4 little shadow boxes that I am using. I glued pages from an old Alice book to them.
and these are 3 of the little shadowboxes. I bout them from the Dollar Tree. They had some corny thing on the inside, but the boxes are really nice. I'm sanding them down and repainting them.
I made 4 sets of cupcake cards and tags for a swap and for my Etsy Shop. Here are 2 of the sets.
Anyway, this is what I worked on over the weekend. I can't wait to get the shadowbox done. I've never done one before and I'm hoping it turns out like I've imagined it!!
