Making Mothers Day Gifts are always a fun thing to do but it can be hard to come up with ideas. I love that I can open up Cricut Design Space and I’ve got all the inspiration right there! Creating a Mothers Day Shadow Box can be as personalized as you want. Add some paper flowers to the backdrop or just some beautiful scrapbook paper.
My kids call my mom Nani and so when I saw this one shape that said MOM, I just used my contour tool and clicked on that word to remove it. I added in Nani using the Felix font in Cricut Design Space. I used some brushed metal vinyl and cut it on the Adhesive Foil setting and had it pass two times. It gave the perfect kiss cut to the vinyl and made it a dream to weed.
Weed your image and then apply some transfer tape over your vinyl design. Use your scraper tool to give it a gentle rub and then remove the white backing off of the vinyl. Next, lay it on the glass and then use your scraper again to gently rub the metal vinyl on the glass. Gently pull off the transfer tape and then remove the back off of the frame so you can add your background.I used this Natalie Malan scrapbook paper available at JoAnn and it’s insanely beautiful. She makes the most perfect compositions and the colors are always on point. I used her fabric from Coats to make these cute American Girl jumpsuits and I love the detail.
Cut the scrapbook page to be 9×9″ so that it would fit perfectly in the shadow boxes available at Michaels Stores. I realize this a busy pattern and so it can be hard to see if it’s not in the right light but the pinks go so well with the rose gold vinyl. In person, you can see the shimmer of the metal vinyl and then the softness of the watercolor flowers and birds.
