Alpha Stamps just came out with a set of four different Easter shadowboxes. Of course my favorite was the smallest one, just 2" by 3" in size, with an egg shaped opening. Bunnies! I lined the egg on the lid with teeny tiny flat backed pearls to invoke the feeling of a sugar egg.


Here's a detail. There is no way I could place these tiny stones without the help of a wax pencil. I use mine all the time to help place tiny stones or even tiny paper cutouts.


The larger bunny in the background is glued to the back of the box, while the smaller bunny is attached with foam glue dots to give some dimension. The "Bunnies" banner on top is also adhered with foam dots.


I love the tiny basket, but it was a bit too wide to tuck back into the corner of the box, so I took some heavy duty scissors and cut the back part out. It was also a little bit too tall, so I cut the bottom part off as well (after this photo was taken). Once the basket was cut to size, I glued it to the back and bottom of the box with some white glue. When it's filled with a little Easter grass and some eggs, you can't tell it's been cut.


Once the box was assembled, I painted wooden feet to add to the bottom, and added bright plaid ribbon around the sides, some fun carrots at the bottom, and a bow at the top. Yay, bunnies!

This is a beautiful work of art. I love the color palette and the teensy pearls. You are crazy, gluing those things so neat and perfect; they are impossibly small! I might try out a wax pencil.

I love the picture of the basket - without that, it's hard to accept that it's really as tiny as it must actually be. It doesn't look that small in the photo.

I'm intrigued by the use of the wax pencil (what I would call a China Marker, I assume) to place the pearls. Do you just kind of press the tip into them till it sticks a bit, then lift them into place? This sounds like a brilliant thing.

That's exactly it. The pencils are actually designed to place small rhinestones on fingernails for fancy manicures. Here's what I use, but there are several other options: http://tinyurl.com/yawue8st.

And you're right; it is genius. I have to credit my daughter, BananaAmbush for introducing these to me. She's always so great at finding interesting supplies.
