My shrine was based on the song Night & Day sung by Frank Sinatra. I originally wanted to use a glass moon that I have as part of the surprise, so I was looking for a quote about moons & love. This song popped up as part of the search and because of the way this box is made I thought it would be the perfect thing. Turned out that the moon wouldn't fit, but I like the way this turned out anyway.  Smiley

It hangs on the wall... all the metal pieces were different metals so I colored them with a bronze metallic sharpie... it blended them all together a little better


the back... these are part of the lyrics for the song


the drawer pulled out... I guess there a a few surprises with this shrine- the color of the inside is different than the outside...it was made with two small matchboxes,  the insides of the outer part of the box were cut off and I taped the pieces together... the inside drawers were glued together. It measures at just under 2X3 inches without the dangling charms. and then there's my frame inside



the inside of the drawer and back view of drawer




I made the frame inside, it will hold a 1 inch picture and will stand up on it's own..
the picture will slide in from the top... I don't have a picture to put in there so I just wrote the word Love on a scrap of paper and used it



Everything all together...

Wonderful! I love the dangly stuff! The cupid is just perfect! I really like that it is made from 2 matchboxes. The frame is so cute! You could make an inchie to go in there if you can't find a picture! Very well done!

I love that the box hangs, and the little danglies are great! You chose the perfect images for the collages.

I love how you attached the two boxes together to make the larger one.

Thanks for all the great comments  Smiley

I wasn't sure how I was going to like the color combination as I usually think red and black for Valentine's, but it turned out well... it was fun to do and I got to use some of my paper scraps up.

all the entries in this challenge are so good, I haven't had time to go into each thread yet, but I will.  Smiley

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Wonderful!  I'm a big fan of Cole Porter (who wrote that song) and this "gives me happy" as I like to say.

I don't think I knew that Cole Porter wrote the song, just that Sinatra sang it. I did know that he wrote a lot of great songs though  Cheesy
