Best Friends – Shadowbox Home Decor

Posted by Jennifer Snyder

9 September, 2020 -


 Hello.  Jennifer Snyder here today to share a sweet project made using Maja Design’s  newest collection, “Miles Apart”.   
I primarily used the “Miles Apart” 6×6 paper pad to “dress” the Julie Nutting paper dolls in my shadow box.  The background of the shadow box is the only 12×12 piece I used from the collection.  This sheet is call “A Phone Call”.  
Below is an image of the collection.  It’s soft and beautiful with delicate prints. 


Here are some simple instructions on how I made this sweet shadowbox using the new Carter and Carly doll stamps from Prima and Julie Nutting.
First,  I wanted Carter’s tire swing to actually move so I cut two layers to use as a sandwich, and added hemp string.
Next I stapled the string to the wooden box.  No worries because we will be covering and hiding the staples.


I added ribbon around the box to decorate but mostly to cover the staples.
Meet Carly.  She looks adorable in the Maja Design papers.  Plus the 6×6 prints are perfectly sized for the dolls.
I cut two layers to make her more durable especially because I am going to be bending the doll so she can sit.


I added a few finishing touches.  Carly and her doll are accented in gems from Buttons Galore.  These are from the new Doo Dadz collections.
Next, Carter had to put his baseball mitt down so he could swing.  The mitt is a 3D button also from Buttons Galore.


Thank you for stopping here today.  The new collection has shipped and should be showing up in stores soon.  You can check the store finder list for vendors.
Happy crafting.
