DIY Shadowbox Memory Keeper

{We've moved! Visit us at our new and improved blog at: Texas Craft House}

Happy April Fool's Day!

My mom, sister and I all got together for a craft afternoon. :) Today, I am sharing my sister's craft. A shadowbox memory keeper! :) Talk about easy, inexpensive and so very cute! She was inspired by a frame she saw on Pinterest where tickets from games and concerts were stuck inside to keep and remember.

We went to Michaels and decided that a shadowbox would work easiest with this idea. This way the tickets could pile up and be easily seen through the glass. She found the one below on clearance for 7$. This shadowbox actually opens from the side, which made a convenient little tiny crack at the very top (where the frame and box meet) perfect to slip her tickets inside. She also liked the cream colored fabric background.

Then, she went to the scrapbooking aisle and found a cute sticker that she wanted to put inside. We decided the top "special little memories" would work best. The picture doesn't show it well, but the "memories" is completely glittered in gold. This would help make it stand out.

When we got home she simply opened the shadowbox, opened the stickers, and placed the sticker inside.

Above is the picture of the finished product. Inside she placed stickers from venues, movies, concerts, sports games, etc. Eventually this will fill up to the top (or just below the sticker).

What a great way to display your memories of important events in your life when you were with family, friends, and loved ones. The color of the frame, fabric background, and sticker really made this look great in her home. You could play around with the look of this by getting different colors, changing the background with other fabrics or scrapbook paper, using more stickers or different kinds.

Thanks for following! Stop by for my creativity, soon! :)
Cassie and Cally (my sister!)
