See Seashells  Looking for the perfect way to show off treasures from your coastal travels? Copy and enlarge a map of the area you visited. Cut it to fit inside a shadow box, and use spray-mount to affix it to the back of the box. Fill the box with sand and shells you collected. You'll be transported to paradise every time you see it.  DIY Tip: Make sure sand won't spill from the seams of the shadow box. If necessary, run a thin bead of wood glue along the seams to make it leakproof.

Will use a shadow box frame to display a photo from our honeymoon along with the beach shells we brought home with us. I couldn't figure out a good way to have the shells out -- this is a great way to do it!
