Crafting a Shadowbox

Shadow boxes have always been a way to capture a moment for a life time. Instead of special momentos stuffed into a box or in a scrapbook sitting on a shelf, you are able to see and remember those moments all the time.
I knew I wanted to make shadow boxes for both Juliet and for our wedding, but I've had such a hard time finding white shadow boxes that I wasn't going to be paying a lot for. 

I finally found a baby shadow box on sale at Kohls for $13.50 and knew I had to scoop it up! I planning on going back and getting one for our wedding too, since it was such a great deal. 

I used scrapbooking paper to cover the back since I didn't use the mat that came with the box. 

This box also came with little glue squares to help you design without worry about things moving. If you don't have those come with your shadowbox, you can also use glue dots or very carefully glue with hot glue. I'd recommend the glue dots. They are a few dollars and will last you through many projects. 

I love how it turned out! What moments would you want to view every day? 


  1. Looks great :) I'm actually working on one (as well as a few other things) right now!

    1. Thank you! I feel like I'm always working on projects over here, too. Luckily, I've gotten some of them done lately. They always seem to take longer than I plan!

  2. I need to do this! I love the PJs one. They turned out great!!
