Shadow Box...the Chloe' way

Post work, pre gym...I stopped at Home Goods (love) and made a mental list of the things that I wanted to attempt to create myself before I rushed back and bought the manufactured version. I saw a shadow box (ahhh should have taken a picture of it!) with some stupid, impersonal sayings inside. I like to personalize things so after the gym, I got to work. Best part about it was all of the things used were laying around my place so this project was 100% free!

Here's what I used:

  • Sharpies
  • Double sided frame
  • note pad
  • printed a cute pattern that matched my room
I wanted to put something in there that meant something to me, so I chose one of my favorite Bible verses. Psalm 40. After I copied the verse onto the notepad paper, I cut the pattern to fit the glass, placed the note in there, cleaned my fingerprints and smudges off of the glass and voila....

I waited patiently for the Lord; He turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; He set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. <3

An instant, *free*, and meaningful work of art.

XO Chloe'


  1. Very cute! I've been meaning to make shadow boxes of our old plane tickets (we were long-distance for 2 years) and a few other mementos, but just haven't got around to it. Thanks for reminding me! =)

  2. so cute! i haven't made a Shadow box, ever ... i must! i just have to get crafty and creative. two things i am not!

  3. This was a cute and creative idea. That's one of my favorite Psalms as well, that one and Psalms 121.. all over them really.
