The day is finally here. I finished my shadowbox! It only took me about one and a half years to complete… But it was worth the wait because I took my time to come up with something I truly love. I have it hanging up above the calendar in our kitchen and it’s actually one of the first things you see when you walk into our house!
What I Wanted
I’ve always loved shadowboxes that are a little bit crazy. They have something in every space inside the box. Kind of like a collage. I also didn’t want it all to be pictures. I wanted some some actual items from our wedding to be displayed too.
What I Have in the Box
- Wedding and engagement pictures.
- Wedding cards.
- Wedding day itinerary.
What Steps I Took to Decorate My Box
The very first things I added to my box were the pictures. I picked out which photos I wanted and printed them out by using my sprocket. I then picked out different paper for the background of some photos and hung them up on the little rope that came in the box.
After the pictures were hung, I picked out a couple items from my wedding that I thought would look cute in the box. I grabbed my T handkerchief, garter, and itinerary. All of these items were used on my wedding day.
Finally, I grabbed some cards that Matthew and I got on our wedding day. I grabbed the ones that I thought were the cutest and matched the overall theme of the box.
I layered the items so you could see a little bit of everything and that’s how I created my shadowbox!
