I had these boxes made because of all the special little things that my kids were collecting that they would keep on their desks, or stuff in drawers. Marley had coins from our travels, pieces of special jewelry, marbles, seashells and coral. Zeb had fossils, rocks, ribbons and medals. All these things were tucked away, neglected and forgotten, even though each treasure played a huge role in their lives at one point. By placing them in this hand-made acacia-wood shadow box and hung on a wall, these special objects are protected, and celebrated. Now the kids and I commemorate their childhood and those special times in their lives by encapsulating these special objects. We are reminded of the special moments represented by the prizes that were collected. Use these boxes for your own special collections (handprints, bottle caps, wine corks, programs, pictures of your children), or to memorialize a special event. Hangs vertically or horizontally (although we do recommend attaching stronger hardware that attaches to the corners of your box). Large boxes measure: 15 3/4″ W x 19 3/4″ L x 5 1/2″ deep. Small boxes measure 11 3/4″ W x 15 3/4″ L x 5 1/2″ deep.
