I made this shadow box about thirty-five years ago. Sorry I couldn't really get a decent picture of it because of the glass front, but Lindsey's post on April 15th over at Two Crazy Crafters inspired me to post about this.
When I created it, I had to work with what I was able to find at the time, and from top left moving clockwise, I imagined them as "Let's All Sing Like The Birdies Sing", "Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail", "The Goose That Laid The Golden Egg", "Three Blind Mice", and "Tom, Tom, The Piper's Son".
The inspiration to make it came from the Christmas ones Mother had made for the three of us girls. I loved hers so much, I decided I needed to try my hand at it. She didn't mind that I stole some of her ideas. I was even able to find the same box she used. Does anybody still make these? I have never seen them anywhere. I know Michael's carries a variety of boxes, but these particular ones were unfinished and inexpensive. I also like the small size (approx. 7&1/2 by 5&1/2.)
I have been gathering shadow boxes (found on sale) with the plan to create something new one of these days. The creative, colorful and fabulous one made by Lindsey may just be the kick in the rear I needed to inspire me get started!
