A special gift for a special girl.
The frame is a 9×9″ shadow box from Ikea. The “jade” letters are outlined and printed on a sheet of card. I cut it out from it’s background and filled the insides with flowers and swirls. I then put folded posts underneath to raise it .5″ high, and glued on polka dot patterned scrapbook paper.
The background swirl was glued in place after the letters were set. I think the one swirl that was allowed to come forward to brush the “j” adds to the depth. Of course the cherry on top of the cupcake is the pièce de résistance.
I offer instructions on how to make my flowers and hope you’ve been inspired!
