Mini Makeover - Shadow Box

A few years ago the hubby gave me the frame/shadow box pictured below for Valentine's Day. We have a $10 limit and I think he snagged it on sale at Restoration Hardware. You can find similar boxes here, here, and here.


It has been sitting in my craft room just waiting to be used. When I was trying to think of ways to use the fabric I had left over from Baby Girl's curtains, it immediately came to mind. It will be a great place to pin her hospital bracelet, hat, and other little mementos from babyhood, and it was super easy to customize it with my fabric.

First I unscrewed the tiny little screws that attached the back to the frame. Then I took out the insert that I wanted to cover with my fabric. I cut my fabric to be about 2 inches bigger on all four sides, lay it face down on a table and wrapped the insert. I used double sided tape to hold things in place. Next I simply popped it back in the frame and screwed on the back. It will only be a matter of weeks before I am filling it with little mementos.
