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.

    Very creative idea! The buttons box looks wonderful!
    Maybe with the corks, you could glue them in all around to creat a border! It will totally change the appearance, but it might look cool! Show us again after you play with it!
