Paper Craft Shadow Box

We're taking a break from desserts this week to share another one of our loves with you all! Paper crafts are something we've always been into, even though we didn't learn the name of what we were doing until a little while ago. Ai and I have been making cards for our friends for as long as we can remember. It's unfortunate that we never thought to take photos of everything we did. 

A few months ago we discovered that people put paper crafts into shadow boxes and we were in love! But so far Ai is the only one that's done an actual shadow box. I promise there will be more in the future! (If you couldn't tell we like to do too many different things. The ideas just never stop coming!) 

Ai crafted a beautiful rose with butterflies all out of card stock. All the intricate details were cut with and X-acto blade. The pieces were all put together with Mod Podge. On to the shadow box! 

The petals say Live, Life, and Love

That's all for this week folks! Hope you feel inspired to go out and make your own lovely shadow boxes! Happy crafting! ♥
