Dress Up Marci Shadow Box

When I saw Nadyne's project, I knew I just had to make one too!!  I just love how box part inside looks like a shadow box and the sides of it are made out of accordion folded paper!!  Nadyne, thank you SO MUCH for inspiration!!

And, of course, I just had to use the newest stamp from La-La Land Crafts, this is Dress Up Marci.  I lover her oh so much!!!!  Dress Up Marci is available as a digi for now, the rubber stamp of her will be released in a few weeks.  Click HERE for more information.

Really, this is one of those projects that you have to see in real life to truly appreciate it.  I took quite a few photos ;-) to try to convey all the beauty of this project to you.

This container can be used as a gift box, that is if you are able to give it away.  Or use it for yourself to store some trinkets.  Any girl of any age would love to store her treasures in it!!

This will be one of the projects for my upcoming March WORKSHOP.  This Workshop is scheduled for Sunday, March 27th.  If you would like to attend and have not received an Evite from me, please send me your email address and I will make sure to get it to you.

This container measures 6" x 5" x 1"

I really got addicted making flowers out of vellum.  They come out just so soft and feminine!!  Can you guess what I used to make the flowers for this project??  Tim Holtz die!!  That's right!!  This only shows that there are so many possibilities with all these wonderful crafts products!!
