DIY: Shadow Box Flowers

So I have no money. That should be obvious by now. But on May 19th, I had a performance with my students, and one of my girls gave me some beautiful flowers! well since I’m so sentimental, when they started to die, I didn’t want to throw them out, so I dried them.

By the way, if you don’t know, the best way to dry flowers is upside down. they don’t droop that way.

Anyway I had all these dried flowers and I’ve been looking for something to do with them… and then I saw this in a craft book:

flower shadowbox

And I was like “DUDE THAT’S PERFECT.”

So this is what I made and how I made it:

Gathered my supplies!

Started by locating a large cardboard box and cutting it so it was a little over 2 inches deep. If I did this again, I’d use a cereal box (they’re bigger) or I’d make a box out of heavier cardboard. This one ended up a little floppy near the end.

the outside fabric I used was green. Very cute. I cut it to about 5 inches…

then started glueing on the back and folding it over.

Finished decorating the box, and placed one of the flowers inside to see how it would look.

Glued in three flowers (the box was small). Isn’t it pretty?! :D I love it.
