Vacation shadow box

Remember the super fun giveaway we had for Disney week? I told you I had something cute to make with it? Let's see just how cute it is.. :)

When my vinyl friend Dawn sent me some Disney Family stick figures I wanted to do something super 'mazin with them that didn't include putting them on my car. Which my husband quickly vetoed. :( Boo! That's when the Disney shadow box came about! Super simple and easy to change out for each vacation you go on!


I purchased a distressed black shadow box from Michaels on clearance for 6.99. Very good steal if you ask me! Then some scrapbook paper that coordinates well. You could go a step further and do Mickey themed paper but the green polka dots tugged at my heart. Love them! And, even if I do love Disney I don't exactly want Mickey sitting in my living room everyday. :) Something a little more grown up but still playful.



Cut it to size tuck it in there. No need to glue or tape since the back of the box is soft, you can tuck it in and change that out too if you want!



Then add your vinyl and poof! 


 



It came with push pins so I can easily change it out, when I finally develop my prints from this years trip. I should get on that huh? We might add a couple more souvineers that will fit in the box just for fun. Something to help us remember our fun trip!



Not a Disney fan? You could have a princess vinyl for your little girls room. A cowboy or sport themed one for your little boy. A baby one for in your little ones nursery to hold the hospital bracelettes, first shoes and such.. the possibilities are endless!

Absolutely adorable, my dear!!! I have oodles and oodles of vinyl (my dad has his own sign business and gives me his scraps) that I need to use, what a great idea!

Although first we need to actually GO to Disney, lol...
