Alice is in the House by Shannon Cooper!

Filed under Alice in Wonderland, Miniatures, Shannon Cooper

I love these little shadowboxes by Design Team Member Shannon Cooper! See the 2 photos stacked up at right? They are showing how the boxes can be rearranged!

Shannon made good choices on shapes and sizes of the boxes (house shaped or rectangular) so they can nest next to each other (like the roof of the tallest house fitting over the top of the largest rectangular box (as it’s turned on its side — see far right of the top photo at right).

Here’s a bit of intro from Shannon’s blog post to get us started:

Cute little interchangeable shadowboxes, all with papers from the Alice Through the Looking Glass Paper Pads!

The boxes and houses were covered with paper from the 6×6, 8×8, and Backgrounds 8×8 pads. I was careful about which sections to use because I thought of eleven more projects to make while flipping through the pads. Hmm, maybe I need more paper.

The accessories inside the shadowboxes are mostly chipboard pieces, like the chair from the Tiny Chipboard Alice Props, and bronze charms.

The table on the right is really a Tiny Metal Bird Bath. The top was removed and a disk of chipboard was put in its place.

Clever! Note: the base of the Tiny Metal Sundial is the same size so you could make a table from it, too.

The teal tray came from the White Plastic Mini Serving Dish Set. I sanded it a bit and painted it with craft paint. There’s more chipboard pieces and bronze charms here and there, plus a wee mouse! Both the Grass & Mushroom Border and 3D Chipboard Tree – 3 Inch were chopped to fit.

The houses and boxes aren’t attached so they can be rearranged or live separately. My daughter had claimed the larger shadowbox with Cheshire Cat, but she changed her mind when I mentioned that one also had her and her twin in it. Guess I get to keep all of them to enjoy (and the paper does look better when it is used vs left untouched on a shelf, unless you are the cat that had been sleeping on it).

Here’s Shannon’s supply list — and they’re all in today’s sale! More info is below.
