Guest Designer Amy McCabe


Hi Everyone - Today is my last post as guest designer for the month of May. I really enjoyed creating projects using Trendy Twine's wonderful twine. I love to create shadow boxes (lots of examples on my blog). It all started about 3 years ago when I made one for my coworker. It has spread from there and I've probably made close to a 100 shadow boxes for family and friends. They really do make a perfect gift for a shower.

Here is one I created using Trendy Twine!


Pick up a frame at Joanns or Michaels. (I get the white ones from Joanns) I start out by taking a peek at the baby registry online - that will give you a good idea of what the color scheme and theme is. Then start cutting your elements. 


Once you have everything cut add foam tape or pieces of foam core under the elements to give it dimension. Afterall it is a shadowbox so make some shadows. I added Krazy for Kraft Trendy Twine to my project which was the perfect accent.


You can either hang this in the baby's room or purchase a holder at Joanns to display in the room.


I really enjoyed my time as the May guest designer here at Trendy Twine. Thanks to Lesley and her awesome DT for having me for the month of May! See you around. ~Amy
