Baby Room Shadow Boxes

After creating the shadow boxes for new babies, I decided that Baby R needed some decorations in his room.  So... since he absolutely loves animals I decided to make him some pop-dotted animal art.  Seriously, I use way TOO many pop dots in my daily crafting.  I replace my pop dots more often than my glue runner tape!!! I also used my favorite tool in the whole wide world, my cricut, and the Create a Critter cartridge.  Maybe some day I will write down the sizes and then I can share them with you, but until then the pics will have to do!

The giraffe (my fav)
The lion
The elephant

The Zebra

BUT...I also created a few more because I just can't get enough of the Create a Critter cartridge and well those animals are so darn cute!!!  Here's the underwater version I created.  I used clear plastic acetate sheets and little clear dot thingers (?) to make it look like water and bubbles floating up.

BUT... he he I wasn't done because I just had to make a girly version of the set so I created the insect set which is my fav but wouldn't really work in Baby R's room nor would my husband let me hang them in there.
So, I get to share them with you!

I wish you could see the actual frames in person because then you can see all the dimension so much easier.  They really were very easy to make and very fun!  Some of these might go into my etsy shop as soon as I open it.  I guess one thing at a time! I would love to hear what you think :)

  1. This is so stinkin' cute! My nephew's room would be a perfect place for the adorable jungle themed shadow boxes. Personally, I'm fond of the bug collection. Why don't any of my friends or relatives have little girls?
