I painted it white and I am turning it into a Valentine Shadow Bos.
This is the end of it - a "Dr. Pepper" crate.
I put 2 pieces of cardstock between the boards in the back because it doesn't have a solid back. Then I cut a variety of Valentine's papers in to squares and glued them to the cardstock.
You can see in here the cardstock and the variety of patterns.
This is the lower left corner. I have a bunch of fun heart things in my heart collection. These are small enough to work for this shadow box. I don't have my Valentines things unpacked yet, so I will have to fill in when it is out of the boxes.
These are special hearts, one is a pen top that our #4 daughter gave me a long time ago, so fun to have some place special to put it now. The glass boxes are from my hubby years ago. Each heart has a special place in my "heart."
This is the lower right corner. The buttons on these cards and in the little bottle are buttons that were my grandmother's (1890-1963) I was really little when she passed away, but I have 2 gallon bucket full of her buttons that she cut off things and used in her sewing - these are a few of them. Yup! I am a hopeless romantic!
This is the finished product! I need to add some more do dad's to it when I get my stuff out.
Perfect place to display my miniature heart collection.
