shadowbox gift :: map hearts

So I have this friend … who has an obsession for maps.  Well … maybe not an obsession, but I know she digs ’em pretty good!  And since I’ve been known to pigeon-hole my friends with gifts that suit their obsessions interests … I created this map shadowbox for Leslie!

Super-duper-easy!  Simply fold up the little hearts in half, double side tape each half to the next … fan out, and double side tape to the 12 x 12 paper.  And then I just added the extra hearts on the side.  Likey?

{oh, and Nellie … be warned, I know your birthday isn’t ’til June, but your gifts are already signed, sealed & delivered … and I’m afraid you’re my next pigeon!}

    Just so you know… THIS is why you don’t have a package from ME. Since your optic-neuritis, my husband (your man reader) has been on me to mail you a little something to let you know we’re thinking/ praying for you. He was a little disappointed when I said I emailed but didn’t send you anything. He says, “you’re creative, send her something she’d enjoy to let her know we care.” Apparently, your man reader skips any blog tagged with “craft” or “etsy” because he clearly doesn’t understand my creativity-inferiority-anxiety. Husband! This girl can cut paper into shapes & fold them & frame them (I’m hyperventilating just thinking about it!) Just know we’re thinking about you. I’m not crafty but maybe someday you’ll get a package from us with something printed on 81/2 X 11 computer paper using Palatino font in all caps & you can file it under “not so crafty” but “really, really thoughtful.”
