Motivational Photo Frames/ Shadow boxes with handmade flowers

Hello guys
How are you all doin? I am sharing my project today which I had forgotten about. I made these as Birthday favors for a little girl. I made these all from scratch.....it was a lot of work but super fun.

I started with making 4"square shadow boxes using sunboard and 1600gsm chipboard/ mountboard. Then I adhered colorful cardstock cut to 3" square carefully so that it centered. Then I added edges to which are 3/4"in thickness and the thickness of the entire frame is 1".
I covered the entire shadow box with white handmade paper and used some strong rubber based adhesive for this purpose.
Then, I made the loop using matching satin ribbons so that these frames can be easily hanged. To give it a more finished look, I covered the back as well as sides with matching cardstock. I also added a white handmade paper strip to the edges at the center so that all the corners are perfectly hidden.
Now, for the decorations. I did some diecutting and made 3 handmade flowers for each frame....All in all I made around 120 HANDMADE FLOWERS which was a big achievement. Instead of adding pollens int he center, I added some sparkle dots and confetti sequins....so much much. I completed the floral arrangement with some leaf diecuts from and a matching butterfly.  The butterflies are from Itsybitsy but all in white. I colored each one of it to match my cardstock. To finish off the frame, I added some flat back pearls at few places.
I added some words in the center which are formed using glitter foam letters. I do not have pics but the words are not complete as there is a second word to it and they were later stamped. So it looked like
GIVE LOVE
LIVE LIFE
PLAY FAIR and so on.
Thats about the procedure. I am listing the supplies used below and you can have a look it you are interested.

1 White handmade paper (ItsyBitsy)
2 Fevicryl Fevibond - Rubber based glue
