Size:  16.5 KBI got a couple shadow boxes at Ikea when I went to Phoenix and this is what I came up with to hang in my sewing room. I think I need one more to put some small wooden spools in. I really like the button one but the wine corks are to Bla! Tell me what you think?

    Asking a seamstress to mend is like asking Picasso to paint your garage.

    Maybe save your wine corks & put them on a coffee table with glass over them .... the button colours are more exciting to look at. IMHO

    Yeah, I think I'd replace the corks with spools.

    Very creative use of shadow boxes. I think using wooden spools is more fitting for your sewing room than the wine corks. IMHO, however, you might have to stage them to get the best effect. I do like the variety of the colors in the button one. Thanks for sharing and inspiring.

    I like the corks. But, maybe get a darker piece of fabric to show better against the white box.

    Great idea...

    Very novel and unique idea. I think they are both great just as they are.

    Cute idea. I have a couple of empty shadow boxes but did not know what to do with them.
