Type of item: Home Decor
Style: Traditional, Victorian / Steampunk
Purchased shadow box. Chosen baby clothes. Decorative pins. Optional decorative small stars, background decor papers, etc. for embellishments.
What was your inspiration?
Baby clothes laying around not being 'preserved' in time.
What are you most proud of?
The layout and end result of course. Seeing the beautiful clothes everyday and knowing they aren't dust catchers.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Don't cram a lot of clothes in one shadow box. Be simple with your design. I just happen to have twin girls (who are now twenty one) with grandma's identical clothes. I kept this one! Don't get an overpowering shadow box for the contents. I think mine almost could have been but there was just so much froo-froo- inside that the black frame had met it's match.
