First, cut a rectangle out of 3D Foam Creative Sheets using an etched die.
Next, remove the liners from both sides of the rectangle. Cover the foam by wrapping it with the twine…which is super easy because it is sticky on both sides!
Then I trim the twine rectangle enough to fit the inside of the cute frame and secure it in place using the Dual Glue Tip Pen.
Details on the Embellishments
While the glue is drying, use another piece of the 3D Foam Creative Sheets to cut some letters to spell love.
Peel the top liners off of the letters and sprinkle them with black glitter.
Depending on the size of the frame, you might not be able to fit all the letters. In this example, the O is replaced with a little metal heart. Adhere using the Dual Tip Glue Pen.
Use a small white doily and adhere it with the Dual Tip Glue pen to the back side. Then add just a thin layer to the parts that are showing and sprinkle black glitter to match the letters. Use Crafty Foam Tape for dimension and to adhere to the frame. This will help your design pop.
For the back of the shadow box frame, use striped paper and splatter with white and black paint. After drying, add sequins with Adhesive Dots to tie it all together.
