Do you know how to make a shadow box??

I've looked online and they all involve buying one and that just doesn't seem creative to me. Any ideas?

  • If you're wanting a really nice one to hang on your wall to display something like a baptismal dress, I would suggest buying the box. But if you do want to make your own, this site is pretty good... http://www.stormthecastle.com/shadowbox/shadowbox1.htm


    If you're looking for more of a diorama type project, maybe for the kids, there are lots of great sites. Diorama's are fun to make and can be made out of any type of box, such as a shoe box, or container (coffee can, old candle jar etc.). Here are a few sites...
