Baby Shower Gifts

I have been so lucky these past couple weeks, as current projects I have been working on fit perfectly into the Heart 2 Heart Challenges http://heart2heartchallenges.blogspot.com/. This weeks challenge was to showcase a piece of home decor.

Inspired by a clipboard art project I made at Creative University (see post titled Creative University Projects--you will see the similarities), I decided to create shadow box pictures frames as a gift for a baby shower I will be attending this weekend. I was able to make one for a girl and one for a boy and am really happy with how they turned out.

For the baby girl.....
Before being put in the shadow box.

I love the dimensional element of the the ribbon and butterfly.
And for the baby boy....
Pretty simple, but cute none the less. Plus I used really old CTMH papers...Fun Shapes.
Although these shadow, boxes won't be displayed at my home, they will be a special keep sake, displayed in the nurseries of the sweet babies that will soon be here.

Oh, Amy - these are adorable! I love the idea of doing them as a shadowbox, to show off all the '3D' elements. I'm working on a baby boy project and have some of those papers, so thanks for the inspiration!

Those are really nice, Amy! Are you hoping Brian has a boy, or are you going to make a pink owl too??
