Thanks guys! I totally should make his bros! I haven't done it though because I'm not too into clay right now. I cycle through mediums and I'm into painting and paper crafts right now.  Cheesy

Finish them off with glitter. Stick them to cards. Fill them with selfmade soap or make a candle from it. Fill them with glitter and little things, glue two together to make sort of a medallion.

You had me at glitter! Lol! I like the lighting concepts too. Thanks for giving me something to think about!

Do you have any friends or family who just had a baby? If so, it would be cute to spell out the baby's name and put it in a shadow box with some other keepsake(s).

They had Valentine's candy in them, but now I have no clue what to use them for.

Like the topic said, I made an itsy Michelangelo! I made a mistake by making the shell brown, but I'm sure a little acrylic paint could easily fix it.

Here are a matchbox shrines that I've made over the last few years.


This is a tribute to St. Dympna, the patron saint of the mentally and emotionally ill. I constructed it out of green green paper and put a polymer clay shamrock on the top because she was Irish. The inside contents include an image of her, a blue glitter candle, and a scroll that is inscribed with her prayer.


This is a tribute to the sea. I also constructed the box for this shrine and the backing in the drawer is sandpaper. It comes complete with some shells, a rock found on a beach, and a tiny message in a bottle. The handle is also a shell.


This was my first shrine and is pretty self explanatory  Wink The one thing I will say is that this is the only one I didn't construct myself. I spray painted a preexisting matchbox, which I found was a mistake since even a thin coat of paint makes it difficult to open and close the drawer. It's just much easier to custom make each box.


This last one is in honor of marriage equality. Everything in the drawer was stuff I just had laying around: Worry Dolls, a polymer clay heart, and some alphabet beads. The only thing I made especially for the drawer was the tiny rainbow flag.

Thanks for looking!

Edit:
I forgot about this one! It's a tribute to when I sprained my ankle while walking home through a dark vacant lot after seeing a play. It's called "What If Destiny Wasn't a B**** and I Didn't Crash Land on the Neon Shell That Was Once My Ankle" (the piece is sort of named after the play, which was "Iphigenia Crash Land Falls on the Neon Shell That Was Once Her Heart"). The crutches are made of painted toothpicks and match sticks and the underarm padding things (I don't know what they're called) are made from the little rubber pads from an eyelash curler that I colored with a Sharpie. Then the I chose the fabric in the background (from some scraps I had...) because it looks kind of like gauze to me. Lastly, I had this upside down horse shoe that I never wanted to use because it's bad luck, but it works perfectly with this piece.

Again, thanks for looking!  Grin

Hi all,

I am trying to finish this shrine and I'm having trouble coming up with what else I should put in it. As you can see from the picture I have some shells and a message in a bottle. Any ideas what else? I thought of fish, but I don't know how they would look with the octopus  Undecided
