After her daughter arrived, DIY contributor Arielle Royer found she had a lot of small keepsakes, stored in a box, from around the time of her daughter's birth. She finally decided to do something special with these items, and this shadowbox project provided the perfect way to display them in a lovely way. This makes for such personal artwork for the nursery and it's also so budget friendly. After your little one grows older, it will remain a special keepsake for years to come.
