These turned out way better than I expected. I never understood the purpose of a shadow box. I always questioned "what do I put in there". Well I can't even take full credit for this. My best friend sent me a snapchat of the shadow boxes she made for her daughter and I loved them! So we got together and she let me see the items she enclosed and told me what boxes to buy and where. So this is my take on the shadow box! Hopefully this gives you ideas if this is something your looking to do.
A trip to Michael's and I found all the supplies I needed.
After we brought Asher home I started a file in the filing cabinet with his name on it. I had so many papers from the hospital, along with our bracelets. I pulled this file out and instantly found items I wanted to use! I knew I wanted to save our hospital bracelets but had no idea what to do with them! I also saved the card that stayed in Asher's bassinet at the hospital, but yet again no idea what to do with these things.
Items in Box:
I already had a game plan for this box. I knew I could place both his outfits from his first birthday! My best friend told me to add the invitation and I copied her with the wooden 1.
Items in box:
I plan to make these for our little girl as well! These are a great way to store the items you want to keep but have no idea where to put them so they wont get lost. This is also a great keepsake for the kids once they are grown!
Now that Miss Aubriella is here I finally got around to making her Newborn shadow box!
I did the same thing with Aubriella; started a file in the filing cabinet with everything that I brought home from the hospital.
