A Beautiful Shadow Box For Catherine x

I just finished making this wooden box/ drawer for my sister Catherine and absolutely love it! (If I do say so myself!)

I started with a blank wooden box shaped as a book with a secret drawer. I had a few ideas but started with the front first, so I could get an idea for how to make the inside. I was thinking of making it a drawer to put keepsakes and trinkets in, but I also wanted it to be on display and with the draw on the side that would be a bit difficult.

So I decided to go for a simple shadow box, knowing she likes cute small things! I used two Tim Holtz bottles, one has a tiny message on paper, the other I filled with pretty beads. I then made a tiny book from patterned paper and card, and glued that down. I added lots of embellishements and covered a small piece of card with fabric to give the items a bit of hight.

As I like the paper in the background a lot, I didn’t want to cover it up too much. I hope she likes it πŸ™‚ I am very pleased with how it came out – even ifΒ managed to glue my fingers together more than once!!

Ps. Sorry if the pictures are blurry, my camera broke so I’ve been taking photos on my phone!
