framed decoupage shell wall art

This shadowbox is a clever way to capture the memories of that beach vacation! You can use your own shells or ours and add a little creativity to make a one-of-a-kind keepsake.

Step 1

Stamp the map design onto white tissue paper with Manganese Blue Archival Ink™.

Step 2

Tear around the image, then use Mod Podge® to adhere it to the inside of an abalone shell. Smooth out the stamped image and tear the edges to fit the shell.
TIP: Brush a little water onto the edge of the paper for an easy tear.

Step 3

Use a red Sharpie® marker to mark a special place on the stamped map image. Set your shell aside.

Step 4

Remove the back from your shadow box and lay it onto the beach scrapbook paper. Trace the square and cut out the shape.

Step 5

Add a dab of hot glue to the back of each corner to attach the paper to the inside, back of the shadow box.
TIP: If desired, instead of hot glue, use the pins included with your shadow box.

Step 6

Arrange small beach shells across the bottom of shadow boxes' backing.
TIP: Before you glue in place, make sure they will fit in the shadow box when you re-assemble.

Step 7

Hot glue the small beach shells and your larger abalone shell in place, then re-assemble your shadow box.
