After crafting a Patriot's Shadow Box for both my Father and Dearest's Father for Father's Day, I knew that I wanted to create one to honor all the heroes in our family!
I already had the large shadow box that I re-purposed for this project (you can find them at virtually any craft supply store). I printed 8 x 10 pictures (printed from scanned photos, as I would suggest not using the originals in craft projects) and used a beautiful gold trim to frame each photo. So Victorian!
I found the lovely Army and Navy medallions/stickers (I secured them to a piece of cardboard) at Michael's and made a rosette with my ribbon. It is easy peasy....just gather one side along the wire and secure.
A little bit of gold ribbon added drama and tied the elements together.
I will be on the lookout for old war medals to add a sweet touch to the vignette...
A very simple but loving tribute....for the heroes still with us and those that have gone on...we, here at Honey Hill, are proud of your sacrifice!
I hope you enjoyed a peek at this craft project...
Yours so kindredly,
