Throwback Thursday: Play Ball!

Here’s a project I originally published in 2010. It still hangs on my wall today!

I have always been a Detroit Tigers fan. My aunt started it, but many in my family are huge fans.

My father-in-law, knowing what a big fan I was, purchased a pin from 1984, when the Tigers won the World Series, for me last year. I loved it, of course, but I wasn’t sure how to display it, so I kept it safely tucked away.

Then, 7 Gypsies came out with these adorable letter tray shadowboxes and I knew I had found a perfect way to showcase the pin.

I used photos I had taken during various games at Comerica Park, along with a few of our ticket stubs to finish off the tray. Here is how I made it:

Supplies:

Craft Glue Dots®

Pop Up Glue Dots®

7 Gypsies Printers Tray

Papers by Karen Foster and Scrappin Sports

Metal charm embellishments by Karen Foster

Sticker by Karen Foster

Jersey by EK Success

Ribbon, buttons, photos, tickets and memorabilia

Directions:

  1. Measure and cut photos, tickets and papers to fit in the tray.
  2. Adhere with Craft Glue Dots®. You can use any type, but the Dot N’ Go are the easiest to use.
  3. Adhere buttons and metal embellishments with either the Craft Glue Dots® or Pop Up Glue Dots® to add dimension.
  4. For the 1984 button pin, I stacked Pop Up Glue Dots® on top of each other until they were high enough to attach the button portion of the pin without the pin getting in the way.
  5. Tie the baseball charm to ribbon and attach to handle.
