Found this idea while browsing the internet, well, not exactly like it, but you get the idea.  Anyway my daughter loved it!  So, she made it for her grandpa as one of his home made gifts.  Something he can take to his office and "play".  His own Mini Zen Garden.  She even picked out the rocks, because the words reminded her of him.

Whole cost...less than 5 dollars, after tax!  All items from local dollar store.
Photo Box $1
Colored Sand $1
Word Rocks $1
Fork $1 (instead of rake)

Great idea to use a shadowbox for the garden!
I ♥ dollarama!

Thanks Cheesy
We tend to use shadow boxes for quite a few crafty projects.  I love dollarama too much...lol  Spend way too much money there.
