I love shadow boxes. There's just something so satisfying about things in boxes (sorry about the technical lingo there  Wink) Maybe it stems from my love of making dioramas for school as a child.

Anywho, Here are a couple that I've made, mostly out of tissue paper, mod podge and creatures that I drew and glued onto foam board. I scored the boxes at a thrift store.





I'd love any feedback!

Ohhhh -  I used to love dioramas too!  I have such a vivd memory of making one in 5th grade for "Mr. Popper's Penguins"!  It's cool to see a "grown up" version - the second one is my favorite - seems like a really fun piece to have on the wall!

My dream project is to sew a black and white velvet chessboard that is USCF-technically correct and also zips up to hold the chess pieces inside Cheesy
