Newborn Shadowboxes are Done!

I'm so excited, I finished the kids Newborn Shadowbox frames! Picked up these 16x20 frames at Hobby Lobby for 50% off. They open from the front with a glass door hinge.

Here is Madeline's. It has her hospital take home outfit (you can see her wearing it in the photo below the outfit), her newborn booties, socks, mittens and cap. I stuffed them all with tissue paper to give them some dimension. I used my sewing pins to pin them all to the shadowbox.

I also had this name card printed at our local grocer photo lab along with 5 wallet size pics of Madeline as a newborn. I just designed the name card in Photoshop and had it printed as a 4x6, and then cut it to a 4x4.

Here is James'. It has his hospital take home outfit, newborn socks and cap. And I also put one of his burp cloths and his binky and clip that my cousin from Holland sent. You can see him sucking on it in the photo to the left of his outfit.


I thought they turned out pretty good! And I can't wait to hang them up and show them off to house guests! My precious babies were once so tiny! 
Time sure does fly!
