Jon from My Shadow Box Creation contacted me several weeks ago and asked if I would like to play with one and I gladly agreed with the understanding that I would only blog about it IF I thought it was a good product. IT IS!! For this shadowbox, I had my name engraved on the front with beautiful swirls around it. (I hope you can see it in this photo- it is really difficult to photograph glass!):
I thought this would be a beautiful accent piece for my office. I can use it to display cards I have created, projects or a recent scrapbook page. When I get tired of the display----I can simply change it. I used some removable Velcro to adhere to cards to the beautiful canvas backing that the box has.
I also can use the box at local craft fairs or other places I want to display my work and I can ensure that the projects inside won't be damaged.
The inside depth is 2", much deeper than standard boxes, which allow altered projects to sit inside easily. (I have a little altered project sitting inside this one so you can see!)
The other thing I LOVE about these is that I have always created a "frame" from our family vacations. These frames are all around our game room so we can always be reminded of trips we have taken. They feature a collage of pictures and sometimes other memorabilia (like coins from Honduras, etc.) These boxes would have been perfect to use (AND you can have the trip and year engraved right on the front!)
