DIY Wedding Shadowbox

April 10, 2014







Today I am over at Parade Magazine again. I am sharing my DIY Wedding Shadowbox. I made it for my niece after her wedding. It is a really simple way to preserve special memories. Isn't she just the prettiest bride?


I made my on my own and you can see the full tutorial at Parade.

I don't usually do a lot of paper crafting, but this project was so much fun and has piqued my interest. I may have to start looking into more options....like scrapbooking or maybe card making! I do love the written word ~ big surprise!


How about you? Do you craft with paper?

  1. This is a great idea. My daughter is a bridesmaid in a wedding next month and I am going to suggest that she do this. I think that it would be fun to do a grouping, One for the rehearsal, one for the ceremony and one for the reception, maybe one for a bachelorette party.

  6. Hi Kim, your keep sake box came out really nice that you made for your niece and I bet she loves it. What a great idea and you could do one for babies too! I hope you are having a nice weekend. I am following your blog now by GFC & for some odd reason I thought that I was, so sorry I didn't do it sooner! Take care, Julie

    1. She was thrilled, Poppy, both when I presented it to her and when I told her she'd be a "cover girl'!
