Making a Keepsake Memory Shadow Box Frame

Many of you loved the idea of Memory Keeping in Jars. Making a keepsake memory shadow box frame is another way to go. Check it out!

It's sort of a collage with dimension, showcasing items that tell a story, like Ashley's awesome Keepsake Shadow Box Frame. It's a sleek, uncluttered display of a trip to Hawaii with vacation photographs as a background that spell out "Hana Hou", meaning "once more" or "again". Ashley created the letters with Photoshop alphabet templates. Click link above to learn more.

Keepsakes include sand from favorite beaches in lab beakers turned upside down, labelled with little paper flags on toothpicks. You could use spice containers for a similar look, Ashley says.

A few rocks, shells, and airline ticket stubs held by a clothespin. Once all the keepsakes are inside, close your memory Shadow Box, sit back and enjoy.

Cute idea! I love collecting sand for beaches I visit. I brought back pink sand from Bermuda one time...which I could find it. LOL Thanks for sharing!

I love this! A few years ago I made a shadow box with a bag of Deadliest Brew Coffee signed by Capt. Phil Harris from Deadliest Catch.

Now I want to make another one, and I have plenty of shells and beachy things to fill one!

Isn't that just perfect? I love the idea of cutting out the letters from photos. I made a tray years ago for my parents, with memories from our summer visit to them. I used a map of Florida as the background and added Disney tickets and other stubs, photos, menus and the newspaper headline of the hurricane that we evacuated from!
