My last project of 2014, and first to be posted in '15! Alpha Stamps sent me a twinchie shadowbox to decorate. It's a little over 11" by 11". I decided on an "Almost Valentine" theme and a red and turquoise scheme, which matches my craft room. I have so many great collage sheets that I've collected, so I pulled them out and found some great images. Most of them are love related, but some, I chose for their color alone, like the elephant on the bicycle, Red Riding Hood, who's now reaching for some pie, and the curious rabbit with the little mushrooms.


Cupids hold a banner made from washi tape and baker's twine.


Here you can see that some of the squares are elevated, in order to give the surface more depth. All I did was cut some small squares of corrugated and place them under a few of the twinchies. Some of the blocks are as deep as the cubbies, but others have one, two, or even three layers of corrugated supporting them. You can also see the stripey sides of the box in this shot. I love that paper; it's so fun.


Here are a few close ups of some of the squares. The figures are elevated with foam tape. Some ladies, one with a gentleman caller:


Some queens, a fancy lady, and a loner:


This was a really fun project with only one real downside: my craft room is a huge mess now! My New Year's resolution is to straighten out my work space.

Thanks, and no, they're not hard to get out. The box came with cardboard twinchies already cut, and they are just a smidge smaller than the cubbies. I like this because you can move them around easily, and replace them if you get tired of them.

Yes, that's Clarence. He gets around. Cheesy
