Great Grandma's Shadowbox

I haven't had too much time to craft this week with the baby teething and maybe getting her first cold. So there's been a lot of time devoted to comforting. One thing I did have to finish is a Mother's Day gift for my Grandma.


We took a 4 Generations photo at Easter. It's so hard to get the baby to look at the camera or not cry, so yay that we finally got a good one!

I used tissue paper to make the rosettes and I have to admit it was actually a little easier for me to lay them flat than using regular patterned paper. Who knew? I used die cut buttons as centers since my Grandma likes to sew. Hope fully she'll like it!


Thanks for looking!
