Me and my Husband went shark tooth hunting in Venice Florida a few weeks ago. We found a lot of teeth, so I decided to put this shadow box together to hang in our bathroom. Note: I took the glass out of the box for photographing purposes only, silly flashes. 

Each Shark tooth has the Binomial name of the shark it came from directly under it. Some teeth were very hard to identify so I might have made some educated guesses on some of the teeth (sshhh, don't tell).

I made the name template in Adobe's InDesign then simply glue the teeth to the printed off template. The Shadow box I got on sale (50% off) at Micheal's, so this project only cost me about 8 dollars.

That is a fantastic project! I wish the beaches here had sharks just for that Smiley  We have sharks but nowhere near the amount that you find in FL. Great job and I'm sure no one will give you a hard time for making educated guesses!
