Valentine Mini Shadow Box

When my good friend Judy came to visit last fall, she brought me the cutest little shadow box and I do mean little!  It measures a mere 2 1/2" X 2 1/2"Although I looked at it many times during Christmas, I never quite figured out what to display in it.  But I knew just what to do with it last week!
 Isn't it the cutest little shadow box?  All it took to inspire me was a 30% off sale and a gift card to Hobby Lobby where I found the sweetest little heart shaped buttons.
 I opened the shadow box and put the buttons in...........
Nice, but needs a little something to set it off a little don't ya think?
I trimmed down some washi tape to fit and stuck it right on the frame.
Now you know my favorite thing about this project is that after Valentine's Day is over, the tape peels right off, the buttons come out and it's ready for a new makeover  For now though, I'm enjoying it just the way it is!
 Thank you Judy.....I love this little shadow box!

  3. Great use of the washi tape. It is the most versatile craft supply. Love the tiny hearts. Shamrocks next?

  5. You know I love buttons and this is a great way to show those adorable heart ones off! There's something about shadow boxes that seems secretive and a display item at the same time.

  15. I love the shaw down box. I love washi tape for the fact that you can peel it off and use your item for something else. Great job!
