Thursday's Throw Aways - Week 14

If you saw my post yesterday (click here if you didn't) I alluded to the fact that there would be a tie-in with today's Thursday's Throw Aways. The little frames that I used in the project yesterday did have a plastic insert meant to cover a photo. I chose not to use it on my watercolored images and put them aside.

The little framed artwork will be a prize/gift for some of my staff at school and I need to package them. Lucky for me that they happen to fit in the matchbox made with the Big Shot matchbox die.

I wanted to make them peek-a-boo boxes and was able to repurpose the plastic piece from the frame as a window in the top of the box. You can also use transparency sheets for this if you have them. This kind of plastic can come from other packaging. I would consider not using it on items that would contain food unless the source was from food packaging in the first place.

This will be packaging for a gift, but I think if you didn't have the frame inside, it would make a nice little shadowbox just using your chosen image. What do you think?


  1. Love your idea! Great recycling and great project!

  2. ADORABLE. I have a weakness for miniatures. So fragile. So feminine.


It's always so nice to hear from visitors. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
