Instructions: To start with, choose three different designs of pattern papers from the Wildwood Paper Collection and cut outer 3 different dies out of it. We will be using the negatives to create the window for the project. Keep extra 1 1/2 inches larger paper for the top most layer. Layer all the negatives with foam tapes. Neatly score on the edges of the top layer and fold it on the back of the frame and stick them with glue. Stick an acetate sheet on the inside of the frame and keep aside. For the box, I have used 6″x 6″ Foldout Cards-Kraft HCCF1-445-3. Choose a 6 x 6 designer paper from the same collection and paste it on the inner front panel of the box. For all embellishments, I have stamp[ed various images from different stamps from the same collection with black archival ink on smooth white card stock. All the images were painted using Zig Clean Clear Brush Markers. The shades used are…003, 025, 026, 027, 034, 036, 037, 045, 046 and 031. Add a little glitter to all the embellishments. Cut a long strip of a green strip of card stock and die cut multiple times using Icicles die from Snow Kissed Collection. These are used to give a look of grass to cover the empty spaces between all the embellishments. Create a beautiful scene inside the box using all painted images. Once you decide how to place the elements layer them using foam dots. Glue down the whole box. Now cover all the sides of the box with designer paper from the same collection. Once all the inside placing is done, glue down the front window on the front of the box. For flowers, I have stamped multiple images from Wildwood Florals Die with Plum Archival and cut them using its coordinating die. The leaves are all stamped with Library Green Archival inks and painted using Leaf Green and Olive Green Archival. The flowers are shaped using Delux flower shaping kit and the leaves and vines are kept flat without embossing. The leaves are simply glittered using an adhesive that dries clear. Decorate the outer of the shadow box with all the ready embellishments, painted fairies, fairy house and fence. The fairy house is constructed using Wildwood Cottage Die from Designer Paper. The windows of fairy house are stamped with black archival and then painted with Zig markers. Cut a small paper and paint it with yellow distress ink and stick it on the back side of the windows. Stick the windows giving little dimensions using foam dots. For Making the frame stand on its own, I have created a stand on the back. For the stand, I have used a chipboard piece cut from 3″ by 6″ . For the shape, check the side view of the box. The stand is attached with the single hinge on the top and the flip fold hing on the bottom.
