Easy & Beautiful Flower Box

Easy flower shadow box

Hi Everyone,
Thank you for popping by my Blog today. I hope you are all well. Its been a week or 2 since i have posted any tutorials. I have been so busy with Flower boxes & Crafts kits. However i have managed to get a tutorial done today.  This is a beautiful Flower box which looks so realistic. I have mine hanging on the wall and really can not tell its made from card and paper! It just looks so real.



My flowers are made using Heartfelt creations dies but of course you can use any Flowers you have. I made 16 of them and put them in a sort of Ombre effect. light to dark. They look so pretty and for the centre of the Flowers i used seed beads. I love using them for Flower centres. You just put a big dollop of hot glue in the middle and sprinkle your seed beads on the top.

The shadow box is made in the same way i did the Christmas advent calendar and also the shadow box that held 4 mini boxes in the middle. Its a really large size and measures about 11 1/2" x 11". I hope you like it and will have a go at making one yourself. It really is so easy to do and the end result is beautiful. It would make a perfect gift for so many people.

Below you can find the measurements in imperial and metric.
