After making my first shadow box to hold the first roses Kevin gave me (Check out the diy RIGHT HERE!) I decided to make a second one.
This shadow box is going to have tickets and various memories from our time spent together in it. Of course I haven’t been saving much of these so it looks pretty sparse right now but will fill up eventually.
Since the back of the shadow box is a bit of a hassle to remove I decided to just saw a slit into the top of the shadow box. The shadow boxes are most likely going to be hung above my bed, so the slit will not be seen.
Knowing absolutely nothing about saws I simply went to the work bench and grabbed something that looked like it would work.
About 30 minutes later I had finally sawed through the thick frame of the shadow box. I’m sure there is a faster/easier way to make the slot but this worked fine for me.
All that was left was sanding out the roughly sawed area – which I simply did by folding a piece of sanding paper in half, getting everything at once.
I found this scrapbooking paper at Hobby Lobby and decided to use it as the backing for both shadow boxes.
Now I just need to work on collecting items to put inside!
I decided to put a little sign that said 'Admit Two' since the box is centered around memorable moments that Kevin and I have had together.
And here is the final product!
