Collage Shadow Box Project

Hello friends! Today, I am here to share an easy to do project that displays family photos and memories together! Ever since our crazy fortune cookie experience, I have been wanting to find a way to display that little fortune as it is such a big and special part of our story!

This post is sponsored by our longtime friends at Canon USA. I am loving the PIXMA TS9521C that I began using recently! It can print up to 12×12 and is a multi-function printer, so it can be used for office and paper work too.

Thank you so much for reading! I have already displayed this shadow box in our home. It feels SO GOOD to get these special memories off my phone and into frames. What photos and memories would you choose to put in a shadow box? xx. Elsie

  • Love this! I have a similar printer from canon and am wondering where you get your photo paper from?

    • We use Canon’s photo paper— you can purchase it on Amazon, too 🙂

  • This looks nice and is very personal. I try to print out all my photo’s to, but somethings they get into a pile. A shodowbox is a nice idear. I like to do our strairswall with all pictureframes.

  • This is such a neat idea! A cheap and easy way to add so much to a room. Love it!


  • I’m bummed you’ve only been posting once a day! I always look forward to reading both posts at the end of the day when I get some free time.

    • Thanks so much for saying so, we’ve been a little low on posts, but it’s good to hear someone was missing us. :)) xx!

  • This is so cute and such a fun way to capture these memories!

    What is the roll you used to adhere the stars and flowers?

  • Where did you purchase this frame?? I’ve been trying to find one to use for our wedding and eucalyptus stems from my bouquet and haven’t found a winner yet!

  • Can I ask how you stuck all the items down? Is that some kind of sticky back plastic?

    I’d like to make one of these with keepsakes from my wedding. Thanks x

    • Hi! Elsie used glue dots to adhere the flowers and stars. 🙂

  • Did you put in stars for Nova and marigolds for Marigold?? Ugghhhhh my heart!!!!! <3 Love it!!

  • Every time I see your posts featuring the printer I want one so bad! It’s great for DIY crafts. 🙂
