After returning from our trip to Europe, I had to go through all of the crap that I brought home with me. I kept everything…bus/train tickets, brochures of the tours we went on, receipts to tours, maps, etc.. I planned on filing this in our filing cabinet, but I wanted a better way to showcase our trips.
I had this shadow box laying around. I pulled out our past travel keepsakes, then threw them in the shadow box. Simple as that. What a showpiece this is to have along with your pictures on your mantle. If ever you want to go down memory road, open up the shadow box and reminisce.
You can also include pictures, found objects (seashells, leaves, rocks), your passports or anything that triggers a memory of your travels.
You can have multiple of these. What about having a shadow box for any big trip you take? Or even a big event, like a wedding, child memorabilia (their softball years or younger years).
Shadow boxes are so versatile. Let your creativity go wild!
