A trio of framed shadow boxes can capture highlights from family members' lives. Luggage labels, maps, and postcards commemorate an overseas trip, while report cards, badges, and awards intermingle with wooden blocks and varsity numbers to mark childhood memories. Here's how to make your own typographic wall art:
- Step 1: Focus on a theme. Mix mementos, such as handwritten letters and passport pages, with photos in a shadow box.
- Step 2: Layer the elements using pins, tacks, or even brooches within a box.
- Step 3: Hammer a picture hook into the wall where you'd like to display the shadow box.
