Doodlebug Design | Special Delivery & Bundle of Joy Shadow Box Kits

There's not much more special than a new baby... unless it's two new babies!  My cousin and his wife are expecting twins... a boy and a girl!  We are all so excited for them!  Of course, as soon as I saw the new Shadowbox Insert Kits for Special Delivery and Bundle of Joy I knew I had the perfect gift for the new parents!  I set to work immediately!  Take a peek....

Some close-ups....

These insert kits are super easy and fun to put together.  They come with all of the stickers, jewels and sprinkles you need, along with a fabulous guide.  You just need to add some pop-dots and foam strips.  I love the Scrapbook Adhesives 3D Foam Squares and 3D foam Strips.  They are the perfect size and width for some of the more delicate stickers. 

To start, you will want to trim the included vellum piece to be 8"x 8".  Then using washi tape (or very low tack tape) center the vellum over the template and secure.  Now for the fun part, embellish! I find it easiest to start with the jewels.  

Next I add the shaped sprinkles which are noted on the template with an "S".  If there's an X with the S, it means to use a foam dot on that sprinkle to pop it up.

Once the sprinkles were done, I added the stickers.  Some stickers are flat while others are popped up... as indicated by an X on the template.  I find it easiest to do all the flat stickers first, then the popped up ones.

This is where the thin pop up strips come in handy.  They can be cut to fit the smallest pieces. Of course you can use any type of foam tape or pop dots.

Once you've got all the stickers done, just check to make sure you haven't missed any spaces.

The kit also comes with a piece of white cardstock to back the vellum.  I trimmed that to be 8"x 8", and added it behind the vellum in the frame.  You can also use patterned paper if you prefer.

These shadowboxes were a big hit with the parents to be... I can't wait to see them in the nursery!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!
