What you will need :
Something to convert into a shadow box. I used an old medicine cabinet. Consider an old dart board case. Opens from the middle (doesn't have glass to see inside though)
Paint- I used blue glitter paint (blue is one of my daughters favorite colors) bought at Home Depot/Martha Stewart brand
Sand Paper, paint (I bought Navy blue glitter paint/Home Depot)
Carving tool - If you want to carve out the wood grain like I did.
Foam core board - to replace back of cabinet with/allows pictures and other "stuff" to be pinned or glued.
decorative jewels and other detailing items for inside of box/Michaels or crasft store.
screwdriver - To remove door and back of cabinet
Flat black spray - For back of project (if needed or desired)
Frame hanging kit - So you can hang your shadow box once completed.
Light source - Bought cool battery powered 3 LED light/Home Depot
I found a 1930's medicine cabinet for a song on Craiglist.
