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:
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
- Measure and cut photos, tickets and papers to fit in the tray.
- Adhere with Craft Glue Dots®. You can use any type, but the Dot N’ Go are the easiest to use.
- Adhere buttons and metal embellishments with either the Craft Glue Dots® or Pop Up Glue Dots® to add dimension.
- 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.
- Tie the baseball charm to ribbon and attach to handle.
