A family memorabilia shadow box is a wonderful way to bring treasures out of the keepsake drawer and into the open. This antiqued black-painted shadow box from Michaels was backed with vibrant green linen and adhered with fabric glue. Branches gathered from the backyard were tied together to create a mini family tree. Then the keepsakes, including family photos, a handwritten note from Grandma, and Grandpa's pocket watch, were placed on or around the tree's branches. Descriptions of each treasure were printed on colored paper cut into a simple leaf shape. Attach leaves and photos with a touch of hot glue. If you don't want to permanently adhere original photos, you can make copies, or simply attach them with pins.
