Altered Burlap Shadow box frame

Hi there! I hope you are having a great Thursday so far!  We just got back last night from a fun trip to Santa Cruz beach boardwalk.  We had never been there before and there was so much to do.  The kids had a blast and I will have to share pictures later this week.

I have a fun project to share with you today.  I recently received this shadow box frame in the mail from Scrapbook Trends magazine and decided to use it to create a new project for my craft room.
This was super easy and I just love how it turned out.

Altered Burlap Shadow Box Frame

The frame came with glass, which I took out and decided not to use. I covered the backing of the frame with burlap and adhered with staples. I then gathered papers from some of my favorite Pebbles inc. and punched them out using a butterfly punch from EK Success. I punched two butterflies from each pattern paper and then adhered them to the frame.

To create dimension, I simply folded the top butterflies in half before adhering them down.

This was a super easy project and I just love that it brightens up my craft room!
