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!
