I haven’t finished my winter garland yet, but I so want to complete a Valentine’s Day shadow box for my sweet husband. I have been imagining what it would take to complete said shadow box and even got to the point where I was about to order pre-punched hearts from Etsy to complete the DIY Project. It was then that I realized that the heart shadow-box just might not happen this year.
That doesn’t stop my creative juices flowing. No way! It just means I have to re-prioritize and lovingly gaze upon some fellow crafters who have completed some really fabulous projects.
These are a few of my favorite Valentine’s, Wedding, and Baby Shadow Boxes on the web. Complete project instructions can be found by clicking the photo-links provided. I hope you enjoy some of these wonderful pieces and gain the inspiration to complete one in your free time.
I’m not sure how long these conversation hearts will last in a shadow box and I might be tempted to give them a coat of satin varnish before attaching them to the cardboard heart. Of course I would test on a single heart before varnishing a whole piece, but what an extremely creative idea.
This was the exact shadow box I had in mind for the hubby but there is always next year, or our anniversary.
