My Great Grandmother gave me her old Sears sewing machine when she moved and when she died we ended up with her sewing box. She would keep it by her chair to store supplies. I have had such a fun time looking inside it and always find something I have never seen. I knew I would never use the scissors and had this extra shadow box. It did not take me more than 15 minutes to put this all up and looks so good in my craft room. I have taken the glass out of it for the picture.


Shadow box


Wonderful sewing box that is still full of good items. It fold out the same way on the other side.

I love that shadow box!  I have a bunch of my grandmother's and mama's old sewing supplies that are hidden away in a cupboard, I hope you don't mind if I steal your idea?

Hobby Lobby's Facebook page has an inspirational post about using shadow boxes for different collections, it's pretty cool that your project is here at the same time....I wonder if it's a sign!

What a great way to remember her by!  Also that sewing box is so cool.  I wish I had something like that instead of so many ridiculous boxes..

How did you attach the scissors?

A mixture of hot glue and E3000. The paper items are just double stick tape.

This is so unique! What a wonderful way to remember your grandmother and what she enjoyed.
One suggestion, though, that comes from waaay too much experience, is: KEEP THE GLASS! It protects the things you cherish from dust, dirt, oil, and kid's fingers.  I made a shadow box, and my son got to it.... Sadly, in the garbage. Cry Don't let your hard work go to waste!
Enjoy!

I have the glass on, it is hard to take a picture with it on.
