Anyone who regularly reads this blog knows that quite a few of my crafty projects are gifts that I make for my family and friends.
So I had to show you what I made for my niece, Gabby for her 17th birthday. (Yes, I said 17, and yes, that does make me feel old!)
I made her a jewelry hanger out of a hinged shadow box!
I got the idea from the craft store where I bought the frame. The back piece is canvas that I painted champagne gold, than stenciled a flowery pattern onto in purple. I added clear thumbtacks that she can use to hang her necklaces, bracelets and earrings from, and she can even move the tacks around to position her jewelry better. ABF added the decorative knob on the door of the frame so that it's easy to open and close. (Sorry, I didn't get a better picture of that part.)
I added a vinyl quote 'Be Your Own Kind Of Beautiful' that I felt was appropriate encouragement for a 17 year old girl.
My pictures don't really do it justice. It turned out awesome! I wasn't really planning on blogging out it, but I loved how well it turned out so of course I had to share.
P.S. Happy Birthday, Gabby!!!
