I just got back from Puerto Vallarta and loved every minute of my time in Mexico. I adore everything about the Mexican culture...The color, the music, the food and the creativity. It was such an inspiring trip! These Mexico inspired sacred heart shadow boxes were made with ALL of the doodads in my craft box. I went nuts with color, buttons, glitter and whatever else I could find. I love a project like that! I used some simple dollar store frames to create the "box". Just stack 2 together, glue on the back and you're ready to fill & decorate! Use what you have, my creative friends,
and always Make Your Mark!
I'm wrapping these and giving them as gifts this year!
I used a wooden heart but you could put almost anything inside
I copied Loteria pages to decoupage on the sides of the frame
Watch how to make them here!
Tuck paper or ribbon flowers on the inside corners for even more texture & color
Shrine on, my friends!
