- Shadow Box. Mine is 8" x 10" and was purchased in a set of three from Michaels.
- Vinyl - mine is brown to match fall wedding colors
- Dried Floral Preservative - used to preserve the color and texture of the wedding bouquet flowers. I used Gemini Masterpiece Dried Floral Preservative purchased at Hobby Lobby for $5.99.

|Bridal Bouquet Shadow Box|
- Spray your dried flowers with Gemini Masterpiece Dried Floral Preservative. Do this outside, this stuff is potent!
- Cut background paper at 8" x 10". I used ATG to tape right on to the back. The designer paper was used in the bride's wedding invitations.
- Heart = cut image and shadow at 5 1/2" from Cricut Doodlecharms [heart] found on page 85 of the folder. Paper is again from the bride's invitations and decorations.
- Glue and Hot Glue flower petals onto the heart.
- Pearl band around heart - the pearls came from a roll purchased at Hobby Lobby. We used the pearl strands originally on decorations for the wedding reception. I just hot glued here and there to attach.
- Bead Swatch - came from bride's bouquet. I hot glued a portion onto the background. A small flower blossom is attached to the top.
- Date = cut date (10 19 13) at 1 1/2" from Cricut Storybook cartridge. Shimmery Paper is from banner paper used at the bridal shower.
- "love" = cut from brown vinyl and attached to outside of the glass. Cut came from Cricut Beyond Birthdays cartridge and was cut at 2", [love] found on page 132 of the folder.
Here is what I used:
- Clear Christmas Ornaments - set of 12 purchased at Hobby Lobby for $7.99

- Pull top of ornament off and insert flower petals. I used tweezers to move the petals around to my liking.
