Shadow box of baby clothes

Project Description

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.

What you will need

  • Purchased shadow box. Chosen baby clothes. Decorative pins. Optional decorative small stars
  • background decor papers
  • etc. for embellishments.

nice, I love shadow boxes
George22 answered:
I do too, Probably have too many but have a large house so get away with it so far.

Love this - very nice layout and composition. I have baby clothes, 1st communion, & wedding veils from many generations of my family. Seeing your project has inspired me to frame them and display them along with the family photos. Thank you for sharing this beautiful project!
George22 answered:
Good, good. Glad I could help with the creative process!
