this thing has been in my head a while. A little shadowbox for my mantel that has layered paper and fabric a la A Little Hut. I'd like to make the clothes actually hanging on a thread clothesline with tiny toothpick simulated clothespins. Clothes will be out of fabric and paper. In the background I have this gorgeous green blue fabric for the sky and I'd like little red birds hanging by threads and clouds of batting. And some pinked grass at the bottom. I can't wait to make it.
I checked out the shadowboxes at Hobby Lobby and Joann. What in the world? They want like $24 for an 8x10 box. Yikes. I went to (angels singing) Ikea after that and bought a bunch that I liked better anyway for $10 a piece. I love those frugal Swedes.
