For my project today I made a Tim Burton, Corpse Bride window/shadow box for my 6 year old grandson.  he L O V E S Corpse bride and I have been hanging on to some stickers for awhile, waiting to make something with them.  Well I found this tiny shadow box at the Dollar Store right before Christmas and decided it was just the right size for this project!



First I painted the plain wood box in cobalt blue.  I adhered the inside papers with mod podge and placed a heavy coat over the entire box also.  The papers are from the Rock star collection.  I used my gypsy to cut the frame.  First I placed a square on my mat the same dimensions as the box, then I used Fancy Frames Cricut cartridge and sized the frame around the square.

Luv the altered shadow box! That frame is soooo cool! I have 2 ask though, aren't the stickers & images u used from "The Nightmare Before Christmas"? I've never seen "Corpse Bride", maybe it's a sequel though & has the same characters! But, I luv this cuz I'm the biggest fan of Nightmare....Your grandson is sure 2 luv it 2! What a great decoration 4 his room;) New follower via GFC! Thanx~prhmangel at gmail dot com
