Washi Tape Shadow Box

So, with the new job comes a total upset to time management and blog love, but now that the first quarter at my new school in a new district is signed, sealed and delivered, I’m hoping to get back into the swing of things, and I’m starting with this SUPER cute, SUPER easy project.  After my SMASH*Book obsession of last fall turned into a full-on washi hoarding situation, I decided I’d better start doing something with all that pretty tape.  I grabbed a shadow box frame I’d been hoarding, too, and got to work.

Chocolate Art
