tiny shadowbox made of only scraps and recycling materials
I have told you before that i love the designs of Max Velthuijs and because of his drawings on the boxes and the product i always buy them;-D
But i thought what can i make more of it.
On the wrapping they made a suggestion to make a show box, but i thought why not making a shadow box of it, and not a shadow box of a box of a cheese wrapping.
I loved the special round design of this brand i thought hummm in that special space on the behind you can make the hole for a screw to hang him on the wall.
so i started to figured it out, how i must do it.
and thought mayby you like to make this too .
i have seen sooo much shadow boxes but most of them aren't my style.
you mayby don't love this either.LOL but you can make you own by using your fave figures .LOL
And i think everybody will love such a gift.
it' will cost you almost nothing only some patience. I have used only scraps and things that i had to trow away. so it didn't cost me anything, mayby for you a little bit.
hope you like it.

Note:
use for the hot glue gun some cocktail sticks to press down the figure in the inside of the box.
the time is whitout drying time.

Be creative and use your maginaiting by making yours, and have fun with the project;-D
thank you for hopping by;-D
