mother's day shadow box

Show her your love and appreciation by making a truly heartfelt gift – like this sweet shadow box! Just pick a pretty backing paper and arrange a few special keepsakes and photos inside. Don’t forget to add at least one giant hug and the words, “I love you, Mom!"
Step 1
First, remove the back of the shadow box. Next, grab that perfect piece of scrapbook paper. Measure and cut it so that the paper is the same size as the backing. Then, pin the paper to the backing, using the pins that are included with the box.  
Step 2
Wrap a bit of ribbon around the base of the mini bouquet, tie a pretty bow and then trim the ends of the ribbon. Now, lay the bouquet on the backing wherever you think it looks best. 
Step 3
Take the rest of the keepsakes and special items you’d like to add to the box and place them on the backing, too. Once you’re happy with the way you’ve arranged them, use hot glue to fasten each element in its spot on the paper-covered backing. Replace the back on the shadow box and you’re done! Lovely!
