FWF-Forever Friends paper shadowbox

Hello! Happy Friday! Today I have a sweet little paper shadow box frame.  I can see me making more of these in the future.  I turned my into a door hanger/ornament.  I added some twine through the top and a vintage button.  I tucked it behind the box, because it was distracting in the photo!
There is a great tutorial on SCS on how to make these HERE.

I used stamps from Unity July and September KOTMs. I used a scrap from a doily, and made a rolled rose from some Pink Paislee 365 degree DP.  The background square is cut from a pair of old jeans.  I used distress inks and crackle paint on the paper frame.  I paper pieced the branch and bird with Pink Paislee DP, too!  I think that's it!

Thanks for stopping by!
