Shadow Box Frame: Wanderlust

I bought a couple of shadow box frames a while back and never put them to use. When I got home from work on Wednesday and was feeling crafty, I dug one out and put it on my bed. I knew I wanted to add it to my gallery wall (I’ll have to show you that sometime) but I didn’t know what to put in it. When we first moved and I was making the gallery, I printed this “wanderlust” picture off the internet. It didn’t fit in any of the frames I had, so it was propped up (it’s card stock) on my bookshelf. LIGHT BULB!


I trimmed the print down and it fit perfectly into the frame. With shadowboxes, the whole point is to have something in the foreground, so I looked around for some marbles or stones. Nothing I found fit or looked nice and I thought I would just have to hold off on finishing the project.

BUT THEN Will got home from work and I asked if he had any tiny travel souvenirs. Turns out he never cleaned out the backpack he brought to Europe 3 years ago (lol) and it was full of tickets. I put them in the box and voilà!

I think this is just about the cutest little project. What do you think? Are you going to make your own shadowbox?


Tell me what you think!
