Memory Window box

I was sent one of these window shadow boxes to play with, from Happy Daze.I immediatley knew what I was going to do with it as soon as I saw it. I very simply decorated it to created a memory box wall hanging for those little precious bits and bobs you accumulate when you have a baby. I made this for my youngest son, who is now eight.

To decorate it I simply painted the lid with blue and white acrylic paints using a sponge. I then stamped the lid with blue acrylic paint using the Scrolls Work background words stamp which is available from Happy Daze.

I lined the inside with white card stamped with background words in pumice stone distress inks. I added some photo corners. and finally I punched holes in the box with a crop-a-dile and added string to hang.

I thought this would make a nice gift for new parents, in it's unfilled state.

These boxes would also be great for holiday memories, with a photo at the back and the random shells, rocks etc that kids insist on bringing back from holiday.
