Shadow Box House featuring the Marbleous Paper Pad

Katie King CircleHi everyone! My name is Katie King and I am one of the newest members of the Paper House Productions Design Team! To explain a little bit more about myself, I am a DIY blogger, who believes that crafting should be simple, fun and unique. The name of my blog is Running with a Glue Gun and the types of crafts/DIYs that I tend to make on my blog are home décor.

Since this is my first project for Paper House Productions, I thought it would be fun to show you how to decorate a shadow box house in only 3 steps! In this project, I am using the Marbleous 12″ Paper Pad and Life Organized Embrace Today Puffy Stickers. This may seem like an odd combination, but the Marbleous 12″ Paper Pad contains 48 sheets of gorgeous marbled paper and the Embrace Today Puffy Stickers are the perfect size for the individual sections of a shadow box.

Shadow Box House featuring the Marbleous 12 Paper Pad

To create your own shadow box house, you would do the following:

Step 1

Step 1: Paint your wooden shadow box white and set it aside to dry.

Step 2

Step 2: Measure the inside sections of your shadow box. Then grab your Marbleous 12″ Paper Pad and cut pieces of scrapbooking paper that fit those measurements. For my shadow box, I used 2 different pieces of scrapbooking paper from the Marbleous 12″ Paper Pad. The first piece of scrapbooking paper had four different marble patterns on it and the second piece had a collage of different phrases.

Once you have cut your pieces of paper out, begin decorating each piece using your Embrace Today Puffy Stickers. Now, these stickers were originally designed for planners, but they are the perfect size for the inside of a shadow box. Also, since they were originally designed for planners, the arrows and little phrases help to make your items (in the shadow box) stand out even more.

Step 3

Step 3: When all your paper pieces have been decorated, use your favorite adhesive to glue each paper piece into each section of the shadow box.

After all of the paper pieces have dried, you are now ready to fill up your shadow box and display it!

By painting the house white and using the brighter colors of the Marbleous 12″ Paper Pad, it really helps to make your items in the shadow box stand out. Also, the Embrace Today Puffy Stickers help to ”frame” your items and add a bit more detail to each section. For example, I like the look of the ”love” sticker above my miniature dog figurine.

I absolutely love all the bright colors on the cover. It is laminated and has a great weight and feel!

Here’s a view of the August Cover – I love that it is laminated. It makes it sturdy so when you are opening it everyday it will not get tattered.

They really put a lot of thought into the tabs. They are a variety of colors so that you can easily identify them.

On my month at a glance page, I just went CRAZY with all the fabulous stickers!  I know there are a lot of pages out there that are perfectly coordinated…but I wanted to show how fabulous the variety of stickers works together! I have a mish mash of all types from Kawaii, to Live Bold!!!

And here’s a look at the right page of the monthly view. I just used a couple of gel pens to write in my various notes and the stickers did all the rest!!!

This is a view of the 1st week page. That’s right the planner also has pages for you to break out each page. I also love that it is in a vertical view. That works really well for me. Plus the various stickers are sized perfectly.

Here’s a closer look at the left side of the weekly page.

Here’s a closer look at the right side of the weekly view. You can see on top of  all the colorful stickers with notes, I stamped a couple of flowers and then colored them in with my colored pencils. It was so much fun!

Of course last but by no means least….Some puffy clips….THAT’S RIGHT!!! THESE THINGS are the BOMB DOT COM!!!! They are big, colorful, soft and squishy!!! These are a planner girls version of a fidget cube!!! Just touch them and squeeze them and they will put you in a happy place! I used one for my month view and one for my weekly view!

Now for those of you that missed out the last time I shared a planner page, I am sharing my planner page cut file inserts here again. While I didn’t use one this time, they are a fun addition and do work perfectly in this spiral bound planner.
