Jungle Themed Shadow Box: Wedding Gift

Hello Friends! Today is my day on the Kadoodle Bug Designs blog. I'm sharing this jungle themed shadow box that I made for my best friend. She is getting married this Sunday. I used her actual invitation and then decorated to match it.

I made my giraffes out of cardstock because I needed them big and wanted them to be the main focus of this project. Mulberry paper is best used for 5 inch embellishments or less. My best friends favorite animal is giraffes, so that was an easy choice.

I then added other zoo animals that I made furry using mulberry paper and a process that is called tear bear.

I added green Petaloo flowers and large gems. The background paper is the Zoology collection by Bo Bunny. I used the 6x6 paper pad. I adhered everything to a 12x12 piece of cardstock, put it in my frame and added sequins. 

I had a minor problem with sequins falling out of my shadow box frame. I used some tape of the bottom corners to fix this problem.

I uploaded files from Kadoodle Bug Designs to Cricut Design Space and cut out the patterns  with my Cricut Explore.

I had so much fun making this. It took many hours but it was well worth it!
Thanks for visiting today.

  3. Planning for a wedding seems easy but it is quite difficult to find the right venues. The manager at San Francisco wedding venues was so wonderful, personable, and responsive. We received the best possible service on our wedding day.
