Shadow Box Project
Last week was my one year anniversary with my boyfriend, Joe. Holy moly time flies.
For our anniversary I wanted to do something special- but guys are just so damn hard to buy for.
Joe and I go out to eat a lot (as do most New Yorkers) and we really enjoy trying different restaurants and bars. A few months ago I decided I could make him a collage of the business cards and matchbooks from all the different places we’ve visited in the past year.
So- I was collecting them each time we went out. I also had to go BACK to places we’ve been to pick up a card or matchbook. Honestly the most fun part was going back to all of the restaurants and bars we went to when we first started dating—oooh the memories!
I bought a small shadow box from Michaels and arranged the cards to where they would fit (this took some time!). I took a picture of the final product that I was happy with and then referred to my photo as I taped and glued the cards in theshadow box.
I was so pleased with the outcome!
