Cosmo Cricket Flowers and Crafty Links!

I had to enlarge this photo of the shadowbox I saw at the Craft and Hobby show last week.
I really want to make one. I think their use of paper is excellent! The whole Cosmo Cricket booth was beautiful.

Here is the box as it was displayed in the booth. I think I will look for a vintage box to use. That will give me something to hunt for when I go antiquing.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
