Small scale creativity - Michelle

Wall art today with Michelle from Quebec. 
Michelle made those cute little frames and used Crafty Individuals papers as well as the Artemio stamps to create her sample.

Make the little shadow boxes from TPR (posh name for Toilet Paper Roll). 
Fold in 2 and cut at ½ inch (you need 3) fold again in 2 to get a square frame. 
Cut 3 1¼" cardboard square and some paper stripes (approx. 1¼" x 4¼") you need 2 stripes for each shadow box. 
Glue each stripes as seen on the photo. 
Make sure the paper stick well to the base.

 Cut a piece of cardboard ( 2¾" x 9"), cut the corners to give a shape of a house and cover with paper. Cut 3 times 2 ¼" squares of paper, stamp some foliage and inked the edges. Stamp the inchies and colour with Distress inks. Colour the house frame, stamp some wording and add Glossy Accent to hearts.
Glue the paper to the base. 
Adhere the inchies in the shadow boxes with pop dots. 
Adhere the frames to the boxes. 
Glue the boxes to the base.
