This is a little shadowbox ornament that I made. I’ve used a combination of Lumiere paints, Tim Holtz Crackle Paint, mica flakes, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Snow Queen, Adirondack alcohol inks, a small scrap of copper, an image, a couple of buttons, some rhinestones, a pop dot, Glossy Accents, some ribbon, a bell, and some fishing line to hang it up with. Did you guess what the base for the shadowbox is?
Yep. It’s a ribbon roll. Once I run out of ribbon, I’ve been saving the empty rolls to use for something and this is the first project I’ve made out of them. The roll is basically a cardboard center with a piece of cardboard glued to the top and bottom of it. All you have to do is carefully peel off the top piece of cardboard and you are left with an opening perfect for a shadowbox. The one I used was from a really small roll of ribbon that came in a sampler pack and it had no hole in the middle as most of them do but if you use one with a hole in it, you just need to put a little scrap of cardboard inside of it to cover that and you’re all set to embellish!
