I’m SO excited about this Rose Heart Shadow Box. This project is something I’ve been wanting to do for YEARS and finally decided to just do it, for crying out loud. 🙂 I’m really happy with how it turned out, imperfections and all! These dried roses have a very special meaning to me, they are roses my hubby has given me throughout our relationship, some of them dating clear back to the early-mid 1990’s. We met when we were 14. So they are OLD. 🙂 And I have saved them because I am sentimental like that. And I love my husband. And now my little “vintage” dried roses can be displayed prettily in our home. And I am happy about it.
It was pretty easy. I just got my basket of dried roses out and dusted them off a bit, carefully, with one of those compressed air thingies that you clean out your keyboard with.
I removed the dried leaves and trimmed the stems as far down as I could. Then I arranged them into a heart-like shape and didn’t worry if it wasn’t a perfectly symmetrical heart. 🙂
Out came my trusty hot glue gun–I glued the bottom of the roses onto a piece of cardstock, then I mounted it on the back of my shadow box frame. Easy.

PS: I promise I’ll post a photo/bio soon. First I need to actually find a pic with me in front of the camera instead of behind the camera! 🙂
