The similarities are just a little freaky...
But they are both wonderful!

We should probably never meet in real life. We may be doppelgangers.

I just heard about this craft along today Grin
Inspired by http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=236219.0

I've had a go but I want to take my time finding the right things to go inside, as I have heaps of little mementos tucked away all over the house, and its late and I cant remember where they are!
anyhow this is how the little cupboard looked before




 
and after a little paint etc



featuring the "pirate devil duckie" I got today, oh how I love that little duck! squeee!





the colours not very accurate, its a nicer blue and its even inside I swear!
anyhow thanks for looking Grin

Well, this is my first submission on the topic of shrines.  It's kind of a sad topic, so if you aren't in the mood, you might want to skip over this submission...This is actually a reliquary, and it does have a deep spiritual relevance and purpose.  This is just a little wooden box I bought at the craft store and decorated to hold the tiniest lock of hair from my baby grandaughter who was recently stillborn.  I don't mean at all to be a bummer to anyone who reads this, I just want to testify that craftster really is cheaper than therapy, and for me making and sharing this little craft is good therapy.  I've done a lot of searching on craftster and other online sources for ideas on memorial items to make, which hasn't been easy, so maybe this will show up for someone else who is looking for the same thing.

Here you can see the little box with the lid closed.  I chose the light green color because it reminds me of spring.  I have learned that the image of butterflies is pretty common, and a very relevant symbol, for the passing of a baby or child (or I suppose anyone of any age).  These are just glittery decals from the craft store.  The copper is foil tape.



And here the box is open and you can see it has two sections.  On the inside of the lid of the box, I put some nice pink scrapbook paper.  You can't tell by looking here, but there is a panel of glass that will cover the pink paper, and the lock of hair will go between the glass and the paper, so that you see it when you open the box.




And here you see a close up of the purple butterfly in the bottom of the box.  After painting, I put down some tissue paper that has clouds on it, and the butterfly is also made with the decals I purchased.  I photocopied the image onto photo paper a few times, cut them all out, then made 3 or 4 layers using foam tape, to get that sort of 3-d effect.



The whole family is finding solace in art and crafting things to represent our little lost baby, as we strive to create tangible evidence of her existence.

Thanks so much for looking, and if anyone happens to know of any creative ideas for an artful memorial service, feel free to pm me.

Shrines & reliquaries can be and usually are very personal. Thank you for sharing it with us, its beautiful.

The piece I posted recently was in remembrance of my mother who passed away when she was 40 (I was 16). It was a gift for my sister. I plan on doing another, more complex piece in the future that has to do with her.
