Create a Shadow Box Frame with Ribbon

Hi, it’s Gini here to share a little ribbon love with you! I have not stopped swooning over the May Arts eyelet, since I first saw it.  It is so easy to use on any type of project, and today I have a layout to share with you.  I’ve used the lace to create a shadow-box frame effect.

I cut the center square away from the patterned paper.  On the wrong side of the paper, near the inner edge, I applied Scor-tape.   I adhered the eyelet along the borders, facing towards the empty center.  I used foam adhesive to raise this layer up above the base layer.

This is a really simple technique to use, but I love the depth that it adds.
