An Eerie Tale Shadow Box Frame

Standard

Hey there Peeps! It’s almost Halloween and I’ve got another fabulous project created especially for Graphic 45. Shadow Box frames are my new obsession. Adding all the layers really sets a stage to tell a story in a small space. For this frame  I’m using patterned papers from An Eerie Tale to tell a not too spooky Halloween story.  I’ve also added coordinating trims and lovely flowers to accent the frame.  Sometimes adding metal hangers to the backs of frames causes them hang unevenly so  instead I opted to attach the box to a tag from the Tag Album…to simply hang from the metal eyelets.
