Shadow Boxes

I've been wanting to do little baby shadow boxes for some time for each of my children but just didn't make the time until this last week. Michaels had a great deal on these shadow boxes (I got them for $10 a piece). They are 11" x 14". I used a staple gun to tack the hats, socks, bibs, shirts and then Velcro for the bracelets and pictures. I just used sticky tack to get the items that are at the bottom to stay in place.

I couldn't find Christian's hat from the hospital but my sister is going to pick me up a new one. So that's why there is an empty space in his box.

Sorry not the best of pictures. I wound up hanging them over our bed.
