Shadow Box: A Vague Tutorial

When the 12 Tags of Christmas Finale winner was chosen, along with the 15 artistic winners, I immediately started brainstorming ideas as to what to do with the tags I had made. There was no way I was going to let them just sit on my table or in an album after all of the work I had done! I mentioned making a shadow box to my father-in-law, and the very next morning, I woke up to wood, stain, and a sander in the back yard. He just looked at me, and said, "I've got some work for you to do." I've spent the last two days sanding, staining, glueing, measuring...it's been great! He helped me with the nail gun, and cutting the glass, but he let me do the rest! I am SO proud of myself, and I now have a beautiful box to display my tags.
