From time to time, I look for cute projects to work on, something I often do whenever I need a break from the humdrum of life.

After surfing the net for some inspiration, I came across an adorable art project. It was practical and could be easily made with most of the materials I already had. What was required was a shadow box,  a wooden alphabet letter of my choice, scissors, pencil, paper cutter, acid free cardstock (12×12), different colored silk flowers of various sizes, ladybug and dragonfly buttons, ribbons, glue gun, glue stick and pink adhesive round gems.

The ribbons would be attached to the back of the box and they would hang from the bottom, providing a place to clip little girls’ hair clips and bows for organization, storage and display.

It took several days for me to finalize the format. My goal was to build an artful display around the letter “L,” in reference to the name of a close friend for whom the project was intended. It was difficult to find a cardstock that complemented the colors of all the pieces, but once everything was to my satisfaction, my glue gun went to work, and the product was completed in an hour.

I had a great time making this project, and I would probably do another one soon. They’ll make great birthday gifts for my fortunate friends.
