After it is embossed, turn over and apply double stick to the back. Tape to the inside of the shadow box.

Place decorative buttons inside of the shadow box and use glue dots to glue in place.

Brush on some Snow-tex if you want and sprinkle with glitter flakes while it is still wet. Let dry.
Stamp and color your image. Cut out leaving a small border around. Add Pop Dots to the back of your cut out image. Determine the placement and adhere to the inside of the shadow box.

Glue on additional buttons to the outer frame as desired.
