Altered Shadow Box

When my bestie, Dayna, was here for a few days, we got a lot done. We stamped, we embossed, we cut, we glued, we did everything. We even had time to make matching shadow boxes! We happened upon these shadow boxes in the 85% off section of Hobby Lobby - I got white and she got black. We wanted to do them to match our living rooms, so we each took different colors of buttons and inks and went to town making up the embellishments you see inside.
The button cards were stamped with Papertrey Ink stamps and the buttons are by The Paper Studio. The wooden half spools are from my stash, but I believe you can pick them up anywhere they sell packages of wood craft items. The cute little chipboard woman is from Cosmo Cricket's Circa 1934 collection.
I loved the frame as it was, so I didn't do anything to alter it. I love it when I can pick up a good deal like this!
Thanks for taking a peek :)
