DIY Shadow Box Memories

DIY Shadow Box MemoriesMost of my readers know that I spent all of last week at the beach. I knew I was going to miss it as soon as I got home so I prepared this Make Something Mondays (I guess Tuesday in this case) as a way to remember it. I decided to make a shadow box to preserve the memory. It is always a great way to remember a vacation or event.

DIY Shadow Box MemoriesThis is, by far, the best way to preserve memories.

A few years ago a coworker of my mom’s asked me to draw a picture of his family and add roses (from a wedding) to it. So I made a memoir box, similar to this one. The drawing is not a good one but he seemed to like the final package. It is more about the event and the memory than the  drawing itself.

    • Thanks! I actually haven’t gotten my vacation pictures printed yet. This picture is from Jamaica a few years ago but it looks nice in the box.
