Craft – Valentine’s Day Shadowboxes

Love

Today’s Craft project will show three different versions of Valentine’s Day Shadowboxes.  These would make wonderful holiday decorative items and would look great on a fireplace mantel or bookshelf.  They could also be given as gifts for family, friends or maybe a special teacher.

The tip for making this craft project is that after you have selected the shadowbox that you will use, check out your favorite craft store for inexpensive items that would fit into the dimensions and depth of the shadowbox.  This is where your creatively can be used to make a customized and one-of-a-kind Valentine’s Day Shadowbox.

The three items that I selected were a red sequin heart for shadowbox #1, a wooden love for shadowbox #2 and two interlocking puzzle photo frames for shadowbox #3.
