Hi everyone, Sandee here today to share with you a small shadow box mini album. I saw one being created on the Prima U-Stream and just fell in love with using the shadow box as part of the album. Shadowboxes are great for commemorating anything you want by adding themed trinkets or memorabilia.
When you open the album you can see the shadow box which is the base for the album itself. This is a great way to display 3 dimensional items without your mini album getting all wonky.
Here is the shadow box part:
I have discovered the most fun technique using Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive when applying glitter! First I poured a healthy dollop of glue into the square:
Next pour a lot of glitter on top, you don't have to spread the glue out first, just pour the glitter over the top of it.
Then use your finger to gently push the glue around the inside of the box to fill in the corners. Remove the extra glitter and simply press your embellishment into the area which embeds the piece, giving it a neat and finished appearance.
I am also happy to report that you can drill through the thick layer of glue, It worked wonderfully when I needed to add the jump rings. Please note: I did let my glued areas set up for 4 days before trying this, do not attempt to do it when your glue is soft and not yet cured.
I hope you get to try this technique out and create a little shadowbox mini album of your own.
