Since this post leaves a few days for you to create your shadow box, may I suggest that you visit your local craft’s store to find just about everything you need to design & construct the box. If you have a Michael’s near you, here is their website so you can see what they have to offer.
There is a plethora of websites on shadow boxing. Just Google "shadow box" and you will be overwhelmed at the creativity that went into these memory boxes. Now if you already have your gift, think about a shadow box for another occasion. Then you can take your time and perhaps create several boxes. Here are a few images of examples that may give you some direction.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers, to-be mothers and all those who have been mothering. Cherish them all with a thoughtful gift. Now get going and create!
