Shadowbox Frame For Mom

Posted by Maja Nowak

Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

Probably most of you have already celebrated Mother’s Day, but in Poland it’s on the 26th of May, so I’m still waiting 😉 And being in the celebration mood I created a shadowbox frame that would make a perfect Mother’s Day gift:

The base for my shadowbox is a half of the box of certain purple pralines 😉 I first attached chain and a tassel with brads before I covered the whole frame with Denim&Girls papers:

I layered the papers in the background and hand cut some decorative tags:

Other embellishments include a large rose, some acrylic gems, metal and chipboard pieces. I also stamped, coloured, cut out and arranged a layered magnolia flowers clusters:

I’m really happy how this frame turned out, and how Maja papers provided a perfect background for this beautiful photo. I didn’t use a ton of embellishments, but arranging them in dimensional layers resulted in a rich and bold design.

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: chipboard and stamps: Agateria; metal pieces: Retro Craft Shop; gems, sequins: my stash.


I hope all the moms in the world have had a wonderful Mother’s Day!

See you soon!

    This is a beautiful shadow box, but what I love the most is your substrate! I am going to request of family they give me the empty boxes from Valentine’s Day candy they receive, so I can make a shadow box and give it back to them as gifts. Gorgeous work (as always), and creative idea!!
