Shadow Box

 This is the first shadow box I've made.  It's not too bad but I think it could do with a bit more in it.
Also, the reflection on the glass spoils the look of it, I don't know how to stop this so the next one I make I'll take the picture before I put the glass into the frame.  The whole thing, frame included measures 8 1/2 inches high, 10 1/2 inches wide and 3 1/2 inches deep.  It was fun to make and I'll enjoy looking at it.  In my shed there are lots more miniature items I want to use for scenes like this, it seems such a waste to just have them put away.

Great Job! I've always wanted to make a shadow box for a little grasshopper I got white traveling. A craftsman took a piece of long grass and folded it up in such a way that it made a grasshopper. Now, 10 years later i still have it, all perfectly preserved. A shadow box would make the perfect home for it,

So pretty. I like it just the way it is... not overdone. I love the simple scene of a sewing room. I can imagine it will make you smile every time you see it! : ) Melissa
