Craft Cutter Shadow Box Wall Art

By 7/06/2012 , , , , , , ,

Cricut-Shadow-Box-Wall-Art-005I’m so excited to finally get to share these with you! This year my Mom’s Birthday and Father’s Day were the same day which happens every few years. I decided since they lined up to do relating gifts, which worked out well. I did have these done by the 17th but I didn’t see my folks until this past weekend for Bestie’s Wedding in Fort Lauderdale.

Materials:

  • Shadow Box Frame
  • Craft Cutter
  • Card Stock
  • Pop-dots or foam tape
  • Embellishments
  • Strong scrapbook adhesive

Growing up Winnie was always one of my favorites, and a favorite of my parent’s too, Pooh-isms and wisdom are definitely something special to the three of us, so it was the perfect gift!

Winnie is a 12 x 12 shadowbox frame ($9.99 Jo-Ann’s during 60% off Sale). I cut him, and the other elements from the Pooh & Friend’s Cricut Cartridge and used this free “Pooh” font for the words. What’s great about doing the wall art is since the cutouts are bigger than you usually make they cut easier and cleaner.

Piglet is an 8 x 8 frame, I decided to be cutesy and sub the word “heart” for a heart. On the kite I added a eyelet for the sparkly ribbon ‘string’ for Piglets kite. It’s hard to tell in the photos, but the ‘dimension’ element is what makes these look very professional and cool, so don’t skimp on your pop dots, shadow frames are pretty deep, so go for it!

These came together really quickly and nicely, the most frustrating part was getting the glass clean!

I also made the cute cards to go with their gifts. Pooh for my mom.

  1. I LOVE this idea. I'm gonna try and pin it now. My mom really loves Winnie the Pooh as well. These would make great nursery gifts too.

  2. so sweet. My youngest was such a Pooh fan. Where did the time go? Maybe someday I will have grand babies to do this for. Thanks for sharing on BeColorful and for the fun memories.
