Well hi welcome to my little blog. Just my little corner of craftiness, sewing, and refashioning. I am also a newly gluten free eater so you have a little bit of recipes mixed in here.

Day 60: My bellydance peep immortalized

Last year for an Iron Craft Challenge, I made a peep diorama of my bellydance troupe. I had a fun time making this with my fellow partner in crime Sonja. With this move, I was sad to toss out my peep. So I decided I would frame it and save it forever.

BTW the peep has not molded or spoiled. This just grosses me out b/c I love to eat these peeps. They don't break down. Ah!

I found a small shadow box frame at TJ Max on clearance for $2. I was totally sold.

I wanted to add some bling to it and decided to cover the mat with leftover sticky glitter foamboard, which I actually used for the project. The outside I am using a lime green foam.

Next I laid the existing mat, on it, and cut with my exacto knife.


Cut out the center


Peel and stick.


The backing I am using the red glitter.

Time to center my peep and get her situated. I used a piece of tape to help her stay in place with the foam board when I closed the frame.



I taped down the foam board too to prevent it from moving.


Done. Here is my framed peep! :) I will treasure her forever.
